A-Rod has a sore left calf, the result of getting hit with the pitch. It seems like he will be OK.
Roger Clemens was still steamed after the game but wouldn’t get into why. Roger is so old-school, he felt like that once justice was done, he should have been allowed to keep pitching.
In pointless information you can’t get anywhere else, Joba Chamberlain returned to the clubhouse to find 27 missed calls and 41 new text messages. He is an interesting kid to talk to.

Their physical talents aside, I have to give the Yankees credit for recognizing the makeup of Chamberlain and Phil Hughes. They’re going to handle New York pretty well based on early impressions.
Here is A-Rod on the incident:
And Joba on his memorable day:
