Pregame chatter: It’s a beautiful day for a game but I am off for a couple of days before going on the road for a week. … My understanding is that all the major networks will be cutting in to show Nieves’ at-bats as he tries for his first hit. … The Moose was pretty darn brilliant against the Rangers last Thursday, allowing one run in five innings in his return from the disabled list. Keep an eye on his velocity. If he brushes 90-91 with his fastball, that makes his changeup and off-speed stuff much more effective. Mussina builds arm strength over time and seems to be close to what he wants. … Texas is starting Robinson Tejada, who allowed three runs in 6.1 innings against the Yanks last week. Mientkiewicz homered off him in that game.
