Two games. One thread. The Yanks face the Rangers in an afternoon/evening double-bill, making up for last night’s rainout. In the first contest, Andy Pettitte (1-1, 3.00) takes on Kevin Millwood (2-3, 5.88). Number two pits Mike Mussina (0-1, 9.00), fresh off the DL, against Robinson Tejeda (3-1, 3.82 ERA), who’s been the Ranger’s top starter this year. Will Pettitte rebound from a crappy outing against the Sox in which he petered out in the 4th? Does Moose have any life left in that arm? Will Roger show up at the ballpark to cheer on his buddies and fuel speculation as to his plans for the summer? Comment here on what promises to be a long day of action.
Update: Millwood has been bumped due to a hamstring injury (are they contagious?). Righty Mike Wood (0-0, 3.86) takes his place. He’s pitched 2.1 innings this year.
