Yankees and Orioles Postponed

The New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles were postponed tonight and there is no makeup date yet.  The Yankees decided to push back their pitchers so A.J. Burnett will pitch tomorrow night and Phil Hughes on Thursday night.  The Yankees didn't announce yet if Freddy Garcia will still make his start on Friday or be pushed back.  If he doesn't start again he will sometime in the next five days as they have five games in a row and need all their starters. 

The Yankees are placing Luis Ayala on the DL with a lat strain, it isn't known who will be called up yet but Steve Garrison is a name that jumps out.  They could use another lefty with it also being revealed that Pedro Feliciano had a setback.  This move could turn out to be a disaster as the overwork by the Mets is clearly affecting him now.  The Yankees did sign him though knowing the risk.  Mark Prior is a logical thought to come up but the Yankees said that isn't being considered.  I get the feeling they want him to be down there a couple of months and show he is healthy before they think about calling him up. 

Alex Rodriguez is doing better and was in the lineup tonight.  He will play tomorrow, Girardi said he was smiling today and that wasn't something he was doing on Sunday.  Russell Martin was scheduled to have a day off on Friday but now that they had a day off today that probably won't happen, we will have to wait and see. 

Enjoy the night everyone and we should have baseball tomorrow night.  A.J Burnett vs. Chris Tillman unless Baltimore switches up their rotation.  The same lineup should be in order for tommorrow also.  The game will be on YES tomorrow night at 7:00PM.
