- Alex Rodriguez is back in the lineup after missing yesterday when he got hit by a Lance Berkman line drive in the leg in batting practice. Well placed sources indicate Rodriguez escaped BP without getting drilled again today.
- Derek Jeter needs three hits to tie Mel Ott for 38th on the All-Time hits list. He currently has 2,873, tied with Babe Ruth.
- Dustin Moseley is pitching after A.J. Burnett was scratched with back spasms. People sometimes think players are faking things and should pitch through pain, but take it from a guy who's had back surgery and has back spasms: they're terrible.
Back with more after I do some newspaper work.
