Power of the Pie: A.J. Burnett is pitching today. The last two home playoff games he pitched in ended in walk-offs. However in Game 5 vs the Angels he went 6 innings giving up 6 runs with a no decision.
Swishalish-less: Nick Swisher is on the bench and Jerry Hiarston Jr. will be taking his place. Swisher has been struggling to keep a .100 batting average and Hairston has good number's against that clown on the mound tonight.
Who's Your Daddy?: Speaking of that clown...Pedro Martinez makes his new Yankee Stadium debut. The old enemy is 11-11 against the Yankees in his career including a 1-2 record in the postseason. If you havn't heard the latest ridiculous remarks Pedro has made you can find it all here. Basically you can't call him a man until you have eaten rice and beans with him and he claims he is the most influential person to play at Yankee Stadium. There's a little more on the Zimmer incident in there too.
Empire State of Mind: So I just watched the Jay-Z and Alicia Keyes performance and I thought the player reactions were priceless. Jeter and Joba bobbing their heads was pretty funny and awesome to see,
