It’s Phil Hughes vs. former Yankee, and new Padre, Ian Kennedy. This is the first time Kennedy has ever pitched against the Yanks.

Never mind tomorrow’s hoopla:

Why no Gritner?
I hope they destroy him

Brett Gardner had his hand spiked last night, but it’s a non-issue today. Just a day off. “I’m trying to keep everyone involved here,” Girardi said. “I think that’s the important thing, because everyone’s worked really hard and I think it’s important to do that. Against the lefties we’ll figure it out when we get to Chicago.”
Yeah, it's important to keep the worse players involved. Everyone gets a chance, everybody plays, that's the important thing.
I'm glad Phil is getting the chance to Be Involved.
Aaaaaaaand, that'll do it.
So Pineda has a sore shoulder and Hughes sucks. Just wonderful.
Phil did manage to get three outs. One was an RBI, one was the pitcher sacrificing, and the other was a CS.
phelps is hurt too and jetes has a calf issue again.
Yeah, that's a good strategy. You want Phil pitching with as many men on base as possible.
Oh, come on. I think everyone needs a chance to play. Joe hardly gave Phil a chance at all!
(Sarcasm makes the whole thing less painful somehow. For me.)
Hit the showers, Phil. Nice work. I can't even muster enough rage to string about 25 os after a b.
I'm so glad we held on to Phil Hughes this week. This was fun.
Lettuce remember Romine's first ML home run.
 Oh, man. Damn.
Isn't San Diego the birthplace of the Caesar Salad? Just sayin'.
So Pineda has a sore shoulder...
This should surprise no one. Britt. Burns.
 Yes. San Diego and Tijuana, contemporaneously. (The Caesar Salad features romaine, is why I say.)
Tying run on deck.
Tying run at the plate.
Couldn't CC bat for Li'l Bridge? Or somebody who isn't hitting .121?
I mean, Brent Lillibridge against Huston Street? That was comical.
Well, good fight, boys.
I couldn't watch. Bidding on a house in Florida.
