100607_13281.jpgJoe Torre, Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte, Doug Mientkiewicz and Brian Cashman were made available to reporters today. Torre and Rocket had to be there under MLB rules. Minky and Pettitte were good enough to sit down and help out.

Torre said he was considering using Jason Giambi as either the first baseman or DH. He is 6 of 14 with two homers against Westbrook, so that makes sense. Hideki Matsui 5 of 11, so maybe Mientkiewicz (5 for 21) sits.

Clemens was his usual confident self. “Bottom line is for me to get the ball to the next starter,” he said.

Here are the complete press conferences from Yankee Stadium …

Meanwhile, in a totally random event today, former St. John’s coach Lou Carnesecca was on the same flight from Cleveland.

Coach was coming back from a clinic he did for Nike. My first job out of college was covering UConn basketball for a paper in Connecticut and he was one of the great characters of the Big East at the time. He was a great coach and a funny guy, a real New York legend.

I went over to say hello and we had a nice conversation. Carnesecca is 82 now and a huge Yankees fan. “You watch,” he said. “They’ll get back in this thing. Joe Torre is from Brooklyn, St. Francis Prep. I remember when he was a kid. He knows what to do.”

So there you go. Trust Coach Carnesecca.

That’s it for the blogging today. I’m pretty wiped out and have a story to do. Check back tomorrow, we’ll have updates all day on Game 3. Get that squirrel up that pole.
