Tuesday night's Yankees-White Sox game was postponed twice and ultimately rained out, which means they're playing two today. I've been conditioned by the first six weeks of the 2007 season to say "this will give the bullpen some much-needed rest," but for once that's not the case here; the pen, such as it is, is relatively fresh, and now the Yankees will need to call up a starter to face the Mets on Sunday. Perhaps Chase Wright will get the chance to break his historic consecutive home run record! On the plus side, I suppose Jason Giambi's foot and roughly 75% of Johnny Damon's body parts might benefit from the days off.
Per LoHud, Mike Mussina will go against John Danks at 2 P.M. -- there's a pun in there somewhere, but I can't quite find it -- followed by Chien-Ming Wang against Jose Contreras at 8. You've gotta think that second match-up favors the Yankees, but nothing would surprise me: by now we should all be used to the Ghost of Ineffective Yankee Pitchers Past coming back to haunt the team.
