Rubber Game:Maybe it's just me, but it seems like every 3-game series the Yankees play, they split the first two games and go in needing to win the last game to win the series.

Ducks on the pond: The Yankees left 13 runners on base yesterday, and despite the fact they had 11 hits, the offense didn't really get going.

Stopper: This is why they pay CC the big bucks, to pitch against the other team's best pitcher and stop losing streaks. He only has one decision in a game following a Yankee loss this season, and it was his 7.2 inning, one hit, performance against the Rays in the first week of the season. Let's hope for a repeat of that.

UPDATE 8:10: Luis Castillo was scratched from the lineup. Alex Cora is in his place at 2nd and in the 2-hole in the lineup.
