Here are the lineups:
Clemens RHP (3-5, 4.23)
Towers RHP (5-8, 5.17)
Pregame chatter: Jason Giambi, who appears to be in great shape, said he understood how well the team was playing and was prepared to do whatever Torre asked him. … Joba Chamberlain is an impressive young man. Walked around the clubhouse introducing himself to every player and coach. He is going to pitch tonight. … The Yankees have two of the youngest pitchers in the majors in Chamberlain and Hughes. Felix Hernandez and Yovani Gallardo are the others.
Back with more shortly including (hopefully) Joba audio.
UPDATE, 6:16 p.m.: Eureka, if you move up one row in the press box, the wireless is strong enough to upload audio.
Here is Joba Chamberlain’s first MLB interview. Very composed kid, you’ll like this:
UPDATE, 6:31 p.m.: Here is even more audio:
and Jason Giambi:
UPDATE, 9:07 p.m.: Man, do I hate the wireless here. Seems my posts weren’t being saved. To sum up, Posada is good, nobody can get Melky out, there was nearly a fight and Clemens is pitching a gem.
Sorry for the technical issues.
UPDATE, 10:01 p.m.: That’s one K for Joba. Quite a start for the kid. This is fun to watch.
UPDATE, 10:06 p.m.: A walk? A walk? Now a hit? Somewhere in a Toronto airport bar, Brian Bruney just finished a beer and yelled, “I can do that,” at the television.
UPDATE, 10:19 p.m.: Quite an eventful game. Back later with some audio and the lame excuses about the benches clearing. Teams never admit to anything, it’s funny.
Meanwhile, Clemens could face a suspension.
