This is a LHYB first, we need to start a new thread because there are 1,300 comments on the first one in the fourth inning.

So here you go. Updates will be posted here now.

UPDATE, 8:53 p.m.: Smoltz done, LHP Billy Traber in. This could get ugly.

UPDATE, 8:59 p.m.: Like I said, ugly. Still hatin’ on Posada? 3 for 3 with a double, a homer and two runs scored.

UPDATE, 9:05 p.m.: Muhammad Ali just stood up and said, “Stop the fight! Stop the fight!”

UPDATE, 9:14 p.m.: Um, Joba. You’re up by six. Throw strikes.

You want to control his innings? Get him out after five tonight. Robertson, Melancon, etc.

UPDATE, 9:23 p.m.: Joba has to be done after that mess.

UPDATE, 9:27 p.m.: 5 innings, 6 hits, 4 runs, a career-high 7 walks, 5 stikeouts, 2 home runs, 2 doubles. Pull the plug and see you on Tuesday.

UPDATE, 9:42 p.m.: Crowd is announced at 49,005. That’s a record. Second sellout of the season, first since Opening Day.

UPDATE, 9:59 p.m.: The Yankees have acquired Chad Gaudin from the Padres for a player to be named later. That could be it for Sergio Mitre.

UPDATE, 10:23 p.m.: OK, need to work on my newspaper story. Yanks up 13-4 and the streak will finally end.

Waiting on John Henry’s next Tweet. Back later with reaction.
