Yanks go for rubber game tonight

If the rains hold off, Burnett takes the hill and tries to get the team back on the winning track. Maybe it's me, but it seems like whenever there is a significant rain delay, the Yankees lose. Do they keep stats on this? It sure seems like they lose whenever there is a long delay.

Hopefully, the game will start at 8 EST tonight, as scheduled.

Posada has been making progress in his rehab, and may be joining the team shortly. Francisco Cervelli is getting a shot due to all the injuries, and he has been coming through. He has been displaying great confidence, to go along with a strong throwing arm. While his average in the minors last year wasn't great, he believes that he can hit major league pitching. That would be a bonus as Yankee fans have become spoiled with great hitting catchers. Dickey, Berra, Munson, Howard, and Posada were All-Stars who donned the tools for the Bombers. Could Cervelli be the next in that illustrous line?

Go Yankees

The more likely "heir apparent" to Posada is Jesus Montero, but your point is well taken.

YANKEES WIN! THEEEEEEE YANKEES WIN! Nice job by Wanger. Hopefully he's ready to turn the corner.
