Greetings from Gate B7

Hello from Gate B7 at BWI, where the Yankees beat is furiously trying to catch up with the team as they’ve already winged their way to Kansas City. This afternoon’s game sees an old pal, as Sidney Ponson will be added to the Royals’ roster to make the start at the newly-renovated Kauffman Stadium. Maybe he’ll do better than Carl Pavano did yesterday for the Indians. 

By the way, I’m now a believer in all the hype — the iPhone has changed my life. I can’t stop telling people about all the neat things it does, and I’ve barely had it for a couple of days now, so I don’t really even know what I’m talking about. In any event, it works better than the phone I had to crack against the Yankee Stadium press box on April 3 just to get it to turn on…

Sharing a couple of photos with you before we depart Baltimore:

On this date in 1923…

Yankee Stadium became The House that Ruth Built.

Fitting, perhaps, that the Yankees will be in Ruth’s home town of Baltimore for the weekend, opening a three-game series with the Orioles. While they’re there, some of the reporters who cover the Yankees are heading over to the Babe Ruth Museum for a tour.

If you’ve never headed down I-95 to ‘invade’ Oriole Park at Camden Yards, let’s just say that there are plenty of Yankees fans who do. You should definitely put this one on your travelogue. It’s a great ballpark and the Inner Harbor is quite nice for walking, shopping and eating, especially on a day as nice as this one.

Here are the pitching matchups for this series:

Friday: Phil Hughes, RHP @ Daniel Cabrera, RHP (0-0, 5.94)
Saturday: Ian Kennedy, RHP (0-1, 8.74) @ Brian Burres, LHP (1-1, 5.40)
Sunday: Andy Pettitte, LHP (2-1, 3.38) @ Steve Trachsel, RHP (1-2, 5.65)
