Roger Clemens is looking to follow up on a great pitching performance by Andy Pettitte. He didn't have a great start last time but he`s had a pretty good season. Sean Marcum has also played well this year
- Roger Clemens- Clemens got a huge contract and needs to justify it. This is a huge game for the Yankees. If they win today they have the chance to sweep tomorrow. I think Clemens is going to need to have a very good start today to win this game
- Sean Marcum- Marcum has a fantastic ERA this year (3.68) and it doesn't look like it because of luck. He has a 2.55 K/BB this season. He doesn't have a great GB% but his K/BB makes up for that. His FIP is 4.94 but that's at least partially due to a terrible HR/FB%
- Johnny Damon- Damon continued to play terribly yesterday. If the Yankees are going to come back then they need better production from the leadoff spot.
- Alex Rodriguez- He`s only 4 HR's away from 500 and drove in a key run yesterday and scored the game winning run.
Yankees win 3-1. I think Clemens and Marcum are going to have a pitchers duel. After yesterday's game I have a feeling the Yankees offense is going to be shut down. I`m hoping Clemens can rise to the occasion and give us 7 great innings allowing only 1 or 2 runs. Today is also the anneversary of David Cone's perfect game in 1999.
