  1. Swisher's Evil Empire says:

    If i purchased a ticket with stubhub, do i have to do anything extra? Or do i just show up the day of the game with my printed ticker with today’s game on it?

    • A.D. says:

      The fact you purchased it from StubHub won’t make a difference. The Yankees will do 1 of 2 things:

      Accept today’s ticket for a make-up game.

      You have some fairly long period of time to turn your ticket into the box office for another game.

      I had this happen last year stub hub should email you specifics.

  2. The A’s are scheduled to come back for a weekend series July 24-25-26, and both teams have a dark day on the schedule that Thursday.

    So it should be Thursday the 23rd of July.


    • A.D. says:

      One of the RAB guys already said that yesterday when the weather forecast called for rain last night.

    • Mike Axisa says:

      Heh, well done. The good news is that they can still skip Wang in Boston:

      Tues: Pettitte
      Weds: CC
      Thurs off
      Fri: Joba
      Sat: Burnett
      Sun: Pettitte
      Mon: CC
      Tues: Wang?

      • timrandle says:

        why not Tues: Joba?

        would he technically be pitching on short rest?

        if no, how about Tues: Hughes

        (i know i know, write kennedy or igawa there for all i care, i’m just askin’!)

        CMW needs to work this out, and if he needs to be skipped twice, so be it…

    • Nady Nation says:

      What about this Thursday?

      • Mike Axisa says:

        The league will only makeup a game on an off day if it’s absolutely necessary (like if the A’s weren’t coming back to NY later in the season) because they want every team to have all of their off days. They’d make them play a doubleheader first.

      • A’s probably don’t want to do that, they’re flying back to Oakland after Wednesday.

      • Matt says:

        Oakland has a travel day back to the coast…so they try to avoid that.

        That ‘dead’ day on July 23, the A’s are in Minnesota the day before and it’s the middle of a long ass Yankee home stand, so as someone else said, that seems to be a perfect day.

    • Brian says:

      Whether or not you’re right about Thurs, that is almost certainly when they’ll have the makeup game.

      Maybe they schedule a DH that weekend if not on thursday.

  3. Matt says:

    Whenever they play today’s game, it is like they played it on today’s date…so if it’s Thurs, then use the tix then…

    Hmm, the A’s have an off day Thurs ad do the yanks, but Oakland is scheduled to be in Oakland for a Friday game against Tampa….we’ll see.

    24/House…meh….Ranger Playoff Hockey tonight!

  4. Andy In Sunny Daytona says:

    8 – Chuck
    9 – Dhani Tackles The Globe
    10 – CSI Miami (just the opening sequence to hear David Caruso’s catchphrase for the day).

  5. Scott of 3 Kids Tickets says:

    Sorry guys, no House tonight….

    It’s a 24, Heroes night I guess…..


  6. anonymous says:

    Bulls/Celtics is tonight.

  7. A.D. says:

    They could just have a Thursday day game and get it taken care of this trip.

    In which case the Yankees could go:

    Wang/Spot start

    then in Fenway:

    else skip Joba to save innings and go:


  8. Jake H says:

    Now I have to spend time with my mother in law. Terrible news.

  9. So, now are we looking at:

    Mon 4/20 OAK – Pettitte v. Eveland / PPD
    Tue 4/21 OAK – Sabathia v. Anderson / Pettitte v. ???
    Wed 4/22 OAK – Chamberlain v. Outman / Sabathia v. ???
    Thu 4/23 no game / Wang’s rotation turn skipped
    Fri 4/24 @ BOS – Burnett v. Lester
    Sat 4/25 @ BOS – Pettitte Chamberlain v. Beckett
    Sun 4/26 @ BOS – Sabathia Pettitte v. Masterson
    Mon 4/27 @ DET – Chamberlain Sabathia v. Verlander
    Tue 4/28 @ DET – Wang v. Jackson (back on schedule)
    Wed 4/29 @ DET – Burnett v. Porcello
    Thu 4/30 LAA – Chamberlain v. Oliver
    Fri 5/01 LAA – Pettitte v. Loux
    Sat 5/02 LAA – Sabathia v. ???
    Sun 5/03 LAA – Wang v. Weaver
    Mon 5/04 BOS – Burnett v. Lester
    Tue 5/05 BOS – Chamberlain v. Beckett
    Wed 5/06 TBA – Pettitte v. ???
    Thu 5/07 TBA – Sabathia v. ???
    Fri 5/08 @ BAL – Wang v. ???
    Sat 5/09 @ BAL – Burnett v. ???
    Sun 5/10 @ BAL – Chamberlain v. ???
    Mon 5/11 no game

    making our new rotation going forward (using CC as the arbitrary #1):


    Sound right? It gives Joba the long rest this week by pushing his start back three days, but I don’t think we should complain about that much… Plus, sandwiching our two biggest risks to not pitch deep into games (Wang/Hughes and Joba) in the midst of our more veteran pitchers is a good thing.

  10. Jamal G. says:

    Oh, and don’t forget Jordan Zimmerman’s debut.

  11. A.D. says:

    Is How I Met Your Mother new?

  12. jmas12 says:

    Oh well. At least now I can say, with due attention, “LETS GO RANGERS!!!” Or the team otherwise known as Henrik Lundqvist and 19 or so other guys.
