TIME/TV: 1:10 p.m., YES

So Long: This will be the Yankees final game at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, as it is closing next year. You'd know this if you watch the YES Network, because they have showed the "Countdown to Starry Nights" at least 3 times a game.

Ace in the hole: Aceves fills in for Chien-Mien Wang today as he makes his first start of the season.

Phil 'er up: Phil Hughes has been dominant since moving to the bullpen. He has pitched 15.2 innings over 11 appearances in the bullpen and has only given up 7 hits, 2 runs, 3 walks, and recorded 16 strikeouts.

Listless Liriano: Francisco Liriano has not been the same dominant pitcher since he had Tommy John Surgery.

UPDATE 1:31: Good to see A-Rod feels good enough to steal second off the lefty here. And it was a good idea that Girardi DHed him today instead of having play another day on the artificial turf.

UPDATE 2:09: That Yankees on YES computer thing is such a ripoff. So you can't watch games at the beach, ever hear of a radio?

UPDATE 2:22: It seems that every ball is hit hard against Liriano. He's not fooling anyone on the Yankees right now.

UPDATE 2:45: Uh, this isn't looking good.

UPDATE 2:52: There's something you haven't seen in almost a month, as Big Tex lets go a Big Fly.

UPDATE 3:49: The fact that David Cone even knows who the Jonas Brothers are pisses me off.
