The Yankees have a workout scheduled at Jacobs Field at 3:30. Their clubhouse opens to the media at 2:30, so I will be headed over there in a little while. The Yankees arrived here last night.
Joe Torre and Chien-Ming Wang will have formal press conferences this afternoon. The Wanger is no fan of these but he handled himself well last season before Game 1 against Detroit.
While working on a story just now, I was researching Joe Borowski. The numbers are not pretty for the pride of Bayonne, N.J. In seven career games against the Yankees, he has allowed 15 hits (five homers) and 12 runs in seven innings.
He has faced the Yankees five times in the last three years and allowed nine runs on 10 hits (four of them home runs) in five innings.
But Cleveland does have excellent set-up men in Rafael Perez and Rafael Betancourt.
