A few notes for you:

* Robinson Cano played the entire game and reported no problems with his back. He sat out yesterday’s game with the dreaded “general stiffness.”

* Mike Mussina will face the Marlins in Miami on Friday. If he can go, Andy Pettitte would pitch in a minor-league game in Tampa. If Pettitte can make that start Friday and go 85 pitches, he would be ready to pitch in the second game of the season.

* Jeff Karstens, he of the 9.64 ERA, was disconsolate after the game. “Before today I was feeling all right,” Karstens said. “I pitched better early (in spring training). I wish it were the other way.”

* The Yankees lost 8-0 and had two hits. The game zipped by, which was good. Jaret Wright pitched a scoreless inning for the Pirates and appears to have a shot to make the team as a reliever.

* Let’s go Tar Heels. I need to keep at least a few brackets alive.
