The Yankees and Angels couldn’t avoid the raindrops yesterday and MLB postponed Game 6 until today. Chad Jennings has the story on the rainout and what it means for both teams.
My column focused on Joe Girardi’s decision to keep Andy Pettitte as his Game 6 starter instead of giving the ball to a fully-rested CC Sabathia. Cliff’s Notes version: I’m in favor of it. In truth, I think it’s a no-brainer. Check out the column for more explanation.
Rick Carpiniello thinks this series had the potential to be a classic but hasn’t played out that way.
And finally, Josh Thomson writes about how Mariano Rivera is planning to give struggling Phil Hughes a pep talk. His notebook also has the rest of the news from a soggy, soggy day at the Stadium.
I’ll repost the Flash Points pitching analysis later today and we’ll have the game post up around 4 p.m. Remember that first pitch is about 20 minutes later – 8:20 p.m. – than it was scheduled for yesterday, and be sure to check back throughout the day for more.
