    A rainout today might be a good thing for the Yankees. It could reset the emotional clock of both teams. And, for sure, it gives Wang a chance to help in either Game 4 or 5. (If Game 4 was tomorrow instead of today, Wang has 3-days rest. A Game 5 on Monday would mean Wang has normal rest.)

    I’d rather see Wang following Chacón or Mussina in a game at this point than seeing the usual suspects.

    Start rain dancing Yankees fans.

      As long as they call it before I drive into the city and pay $24 for parking.

      Done deal now. You have a Sunday night game instead.

      Steve, how is this a good thing to give Shields and Escobar more rest? Those guys have been the difference in this series and have flat out owned the Yankees.

      Max – if the Angels have a 10 run lead in the 5th, it doesn’t matter if their pen is rested or not, right?

      I guess I like our chances better in a shootout with their big stoppers sidelined, than I do in a pitching duel with the black hole between the starter and Mo. Especially given our defense vs theirs.

      A thought on last nights game: Bring in Chacon, what with a rainout Saturday a virtual sure thing. The Yankees had to win that game.

      Who would pitch Sunday? Worry about that later.

      Of course Chacon could have been bad in relief; Gordon doing his usual post-season puke-up more than likely.

      Still……

      I think this helps the Angels a lot more than it helps the Yankees. Are they gonna throw Colon and Lackey and skip over Washburn now? That would be a huge advantage for them.

      Have you seen Washburn’s stats vs. NY this year?

      The ARod/Cano play didn’t help much

      I think Cowboy Joe West gets the blame there. All of a sudden, now, an umpire decides to make that call? Something was up there.

      Had Cano tried for a dp, maybe he gets that call
