I remember getting an email address in high school only to have my best friend tell me it was a ridiculous thing to have because electronic mail was a fade that would quickly go away. At the time, I actually thought he might be right.
Now here I am, in an airplane, on the Internet, checking my email and Twitter for Yankees updates that come second-by-second.
This Internet thing is really taking off.
Anyway, these are some of the things going on down in Baltimore, from our various friends who are in town for the day covering the makeup game.
• The Yankees have scheduled one more doubleheader. They will play two games against the Rays on Sept. 21.
• Still no rotation update cutting from six to five. I know, I’m surprised too.
• Alex Rodriguez is just getting a half day today. Joe Girardi said playing A-Rod at DH has nothing to do with the thumb injury.
• Girardi didn’t close the door on Dellin Betances getting a call-up. Girardi said he’s “just waiting on (Brian Cashman) and the decision that he makes.”
• Girardi is optimistic that the Yankees are going to play today. The forecast isn’t great down there.
• If you’re looking for Twitter updates during the game, Peter Botte has the list of folks down there: Follow Botte, Mark Hale, Kimberley Martin, Ian Begley and Brendan Prunty. If you’re regularly getting Yankees news on Twitter, you’re probably following those five anyway.
