No pregame speeches. No big pep talk. Just take the field today and continue this win streak. Sidney Ponson toes the rubber today for the Yankees. He comes into the game with a record of 5-1 and an ERA of 4.19. On the other side the Rays are going to send Edwin Jackson out to the mound. He’s sporting a record of 5-6 and an ERA of 4.08. Call me Captain Obvious, but I don’t see these game being a 1-0 battle.
Once again Hip Hip is penciled in as the DH and Jose Molina gets the call behind the dish. Giambi is back in the lineup after a day off. Huge day for Giambi considering the first 20,000 fans will be getting Jason Giambi commemorative mustaches. Have at it fellas.
