Pregame chatter: Roger Clemens had an MRI that showed “disrupted scar tissue” in his right groin. He will throw a bullpen in Tampa on Wednesday and hopes to pitch Sunday. … Andy Pettitte is feeling better and hopes to pitch Friday. He said the back pain is in the same place it was in spring training but much less severe. … Condolences to the family of former Yankees third baseman Clete Boyer, who passed away today. He was a teammate of Joe Torre’s in Atlanta. … The tarp is on the field but first pitch is expected in an hour. … Torre said he hoped to give Alex Rodriguez a day off soon. … Notre Dame football coach Charlie Weis was in the clubhouse before the game with his son. He is from New Jersey and is a big fan of the Yankees. Weis, of course, was also the offensive coordinator of the Patriots dynasty.

UPDATE, 8:08 P.M.: I had a reader, who I won’t name to save him the embarrassment, try and tell me that Josh Phelps was just as good defensively as Doug Mientkiewicz. Right. The guy is a butcher. The sooner they convert Damon, the better. The problem then is they don’t have anybody to DH.

UPDATE, 9:35 p.m.: Chris Britton is the man, you bloggers were right. I blame this game on MLB. It is ridiculous for the Yankees and Red Sox to play on Sunday night at 8 p.m. then leave on road trips and play the next day.
