The Yankees have Chien-Ming Wang, Mike Mussina and Andy Pettitte lined up to face the Red Sox starting tomorrow. Thanks to days off on May 24 and 31, that trio is also lined up to face the Red Sox on June 1-3 at Fenway Park.
Obviously that doesn’t guarantee anything. But better to have the big three lined up instead of Matt DeSalvo and whoever else.
It’s also worth noting that Roger Clemens told the Yankees he thinks he will need only one more minor-league start before coming back. So you can pencil him in for May 29 in Toronto.
