Another beautiful spring day, albeit one a bit cooler than the previous. Darrell Rasner on the hill for the Yanks, and his battery mate is Wil 0-for-2007 Nieves. Also, Miggy in for Cano and Phelps gets the start at first. Jarrod Washburn (2-2, 2.88) on the hill for the M’s. He’s pitching well—he is on pace to record more ground ball outs than fly outs this season, which would be a career first for him, and he has allowed only 4 homers in 5 starts. This is a winning formula (see Wang, C. M.). But he has had trouble with Alex (12 for 36, 5 hr), who was hit on the elbow in yesterday’s affair. Cairo is 4 for 8, which might explain his presence in the lineup, though, yeah, small sample. Comment on all the action right here….
