Yanks face Matt Moore, the Rays’ stud pitcher this afternoon.
Git ‘em, boys.
Never mind the bandages (and looks like Tex is on his way back, too): Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Digging the ephemera, Alex. I'd love some pictures of the Jefferson Burdick collection at the Met if you ever head down there and have a notion to post em.(they only display about 200 old baseball cards at any given time)
nice start Brett
Pronk comes through.
Yankees already have more hits against Moore than last time.
I was watching the soccer.
 Ach, forgot about the game. Who won?
 That German team.
Bayern won. A tightly contested match. Some stellar goalkeeping.
(5-3) x 3.
Well, a game that started as a contest between Matt Moore and Vidal Nuño turns into a contest between the bullpens. I guess you have to be happy with that.
Nix in scoring position.
Is McGee that mesmerizing that both Romine and Gardner look at strike three with the bat on their shoulders?
Are we going to have every day Shawn Kelley?
Ugh...and Joyce was out.
This is pure suckitude. It should be 2 outs, and only one run in for the Rays.
Ya think the retirees of Tampa-St.Pete appreciate that loud hip-hop music playing at every opportunity?
Brennan comes through!
I had faith that you could blow the save Fernando.
What I miss?
 You see that EDSP retired? He never blamed Torre, said he had a drinking issue..not sure how that ruined his arm but anyways..
No lead-off walks!
Ichiro! Glove is still there!
Certainly sounds like we dodged a bullet the way David was pitching
 Yup, saw that. He did say he got out of shape. Very classy thing to say, but I do think Torre was at least partly responsible.
I reeeeeeeeealy want to beat the rapist.
I hope Nova converts his petulance to competitive aggression.
What did Nova do now?
 Guaranteed that he will not start.
 He's unhappy about being relegated to the bullpen.
I preferred Nova on the DL
Losing to Tampa Bay is not a disgrace but if Mo is available then it's just absurd to not use him here.
Wow, that was a helluva pitch to get Loney. Damn.
Wow, that's what I call "getting out of a jam."
Nova got to feel good about pulling that off.
 Problem is there is no one else in the pen. Warren threw 60 pitches very recently.
 Google Lueke-rape Charge
 Mattpat means Lueke. Here's the story.
Lyle Overbay! Mark who?
 Whoa, that's terrible.
Mo is going to close it out.
This game has become something to behold.
C-Stew would have had that.
... but it doesn't matter.
Nice throw, dude!
 That's not C-Stew? Must admit I have no idea what most the replacement-Yanks names and numbers are..
This is not fair. Desmond Jennings against Mo.
And thanks be to Mo.
 Oh, whoops. It was. I didn't notice he came in to replace Romine. Oh, after, Boesch PH for Romine.
Anyway, all good! Better than good!
Pulling it out of the fire. And hey, Ivan, you got the W.
And no one got injured today.
Mattpat gets his wish! What a win, stole a game. Thanks again to Mo (and Boesch, and Overbay and Nova and especially Nuno)!
 Read that one again. 'Boesch, Overbay and Nuno'....Suzyn, Ya just can't predict baseball!
I'm just gonna sit here quietly and not point out that in Mo's final season, that he's on pace for 60 saves.
