Sliding Into Home:
From George A. King III:
Joe Girardi has his rotation set through Friday night against the Tigers at Yankee Stadium.
What the Yankees manager doesn’t have — at least publicly — is a starter for Saturday.
Since last night’s game against the Red Sox at Fenway Park was washed out, CC Sabathia starts tonight against the Rangers instead of working last night.
Ivan Nova goes Friday, but Girardi has options for Saturday. He can bring Sabathia back on regular rest or go with the struggling Freddy Garcia. But what Girardi won’t do is insert rookie David Phelps into the rotation.
“After that, we’ll see,’’ Girardi said of Nova.
Because Thursday — Garcia’s normal day — was dark on the schedule, skipping the veteran right-hander was possible. Now, that is a stronger possibility if another starter doesn’t require an extra day of rest.It also mentions in the article that Girardi asked Garcia if he was healthy and the right-hander said he fine. At this point I see no reason not to sk

AROUND THE WEB
Squawker Jon and I were meeting up in Battery Park City to see the premiere of Knuckleball! last night, so we missed seeing the Yankees-Red Sox game. To be blunt, when I saw that Freddy Garcia was pitching for the Yanks, I didn't expect much, especially given that it was a FOX broadcast, which the Yanks have a bad record on. Nor did the Yanks get much -- Garcia didn't make...
DON’T MESS WITH TEX…
Don't mess with TEX....just ask any Red Sox fan.
What started out as a Yankees blowout in Fenway Park, ended in New York win.
Starting pitcher Freddy Garcia was worse than horrible, as he even made Phil Hughes look good.
The Red Sox feasted on Garcia’s inability to pitch. Boston had a 9-0 lead come the 5th inning and things were not looking good for...

New York Yankees 15 — Boston Red Sox 9
In 3 innings, the Yankees turned a 9-1 deficit into a 15-9 victory...
Never too early to hope.So tonight in Boston, a day after getting punked by the Yankees on their 100th anniver- sary, the Red Sox had vengeance working for them. Freddy Garcia got fingered by the second inning, the home town team was up nine in the sixth inning, and any sensible observer was starting to think about the Sunday game to see who would win the series. But, well, baseball...
After falling yesterday 6-2 on the 100th Anniversary of Fenway Park, the Boston Red Sox look to get back on the winning side of things in the second game of a three-game set with their AL East rivals, the New York Yankees.
First pitch is scheduled for 4:05 p.m. and the game will be broadcast to 91% of the country on FOX. If you can't catch the television broadcast, you can...
Rangers vs. Yankees - 2010 ALCS - Yankee Stadium
The New York Yankees didn’t get to go for the sweep up in Boston, as it hasn’t stopped raining here in the Northeast since late Saturday night.
So, the team heads to Texas to face the red-hot Rangers in a three-game set that promises to be a dogfight.
These are two of the best teams in the American League and it is a must-watch...

New York Yankees 7 — Texas Rangers 4
In a battle of two of the best in the American League, the Yankees...
ARLINGTON, Texas On a night when a sluggish Rangers offense was made to look even more drowsy by Yankees starter C.C. Sabathia, Josh Hamilton remained the primary power source for the Rangers offense.
Hamilton sent a Sabathia pitch 422 feet into the seats overlooking the Rangers bullpen in the sixth inning of a 7-4 loss.
It was Hamilton's eighth home run in 17 games this season...
The Red Sox were rained out on Sunday, and they may have caught a break as a result. The team avoided facing CC Sabathia and the Yankees and is now able to slot Daniel Bard into the bullpen after skipping his spot in the rotation due to a combination of an off-day and the rainout. After facing one of the toughest stretches in their schedule all season long, the Red Sox will now also...
Tonight's Pitching Match-Up
CC Sabathia- (1-0) 5.59 ERA 1.34 WHIP
Derek Holland- (2-0) 3.10 ERA 0.89 WHIP
The Yankees coming off a "sweep" in Boston look to roll into Texas and take a few games from maybe the best team in baseball. Sabathia coming off a win against the Twins looks to forward that good fortune in Texas tonight. In CC's last start, he pitched...
Derek Holland just didn’t have it tonight. Maybe he was unnerved watching Pudge Rodriguez pitch from home to 2nd for the first pitch of the game. Or maybe he just didn’t have it.
Holland gave up two runs on three hits in the 1st inning. Then he calmed down a little for the next few innings. It seemed probable that the offense could catch up. Until the 5th, when Holland...
