Yankees look to Pettitte for the sweep

Coming off CC Sabathia’s signature performance thus far in pinstripes, the Yankees will send Andy Pettitte to the mound tonight in a nationally televised ESPN game as they try to complete a four-game sweep of Jon Lester and the Red Sox.

Before yesterday’s game, Alex Rodriguez reflected on his season and said that he has gotten past the embarrassment of his Feb. 17 press conference, using the word “liberated” bringing the issue up because David Ortiz had just held a similar Q&A across the hallway.

A-Rod was not available for comment after the game, when Ramon Ramirez was ejected for burying a 93 mph fastball in his upper back — likely retaliation for Mark Melancon buzzing the tower on Dustin Pedroia Thursday and then hitting him in the left shoulder.

Josh Towers was in and out in one day. Chad Gaudin will be added to the roster today and pitch out of the bullpen.

51,
I watched the game on a DVR delay, there was a lot to it regarding the umpires ball and strike calls, but when the umpire walked about 30 feet in front of the plate and threw him out it was crazy. Victorino almost bumped him before heading for the dugout and had to be restrained. The crowd in “the city of brotherly love” chanted “Victorino” often during the rest of the game. What a hoot?

From this can only happen in baseball department, did everyone see the highlight of Phillie centerfielder Shane Victorino getting thrown out of today’s game by the home plate umpire who was 300 feet away from him. Unreal!
