Standings Update: The Boston Red (Roid?) Sox defeated the A's today so the Yankees enter the game only 3 games ahead of them. The Yankees have won 3 of their last 4 and 11 of 13 since the All Star Break.
The Other Sox: We all know Mark Buehrle pitched a perfect game last week, but they've been reeling lately. They are on a 3-game losing streak and have lost 6 of their last 7 and have fallen into third place in the AL Central.
The Teixecutioner: Mark Teixeira currently has an eight game hitting streak and is hitting .346 with 5 HR, 11 RBI, and 7 runs scored since the All Star Break.

UPDATE 8:10: Looks like there is going ot be a rain delay. Sounds like a passing storm, so it shouldn't be too long.

UPDATE 9:09: Word is the tarp is off the field and they should start the game at 9:15.

UPDATE 10:39: Well that game is tied up 1-1 going into the bottom of the sixth. For the second straight game Pettitte is not getting any run support. The Yankees only have 3 hits off Gavin Floyd.

UPDATE 11:02: Another solid outing for Pettitte with some bad luck in that inning with 2 errors. Lets hope the bullpen can bail him out this time. But it's Phenom Phil Hughes coming in, so I like out chances.

UPDATE 11:09: Well Cano mad eone of the worst throws of all-time and now it is 2-1 White Sox heading to the eighth. I hope teh Yankees win, if not, it will be two tough losses for Pettitte, and he has pitched remarkable his last two starts.

UPDATE 11:34: Swishalicious getting some revenge on his former team hittng a game-tying 2-out HR in the top of the ninth.

UPDATE 11:50: Well, that sucked.
