Derek Jeter was pulled from yesterday's game after getting hit in the elbow by a Kris Benson pitch. X-Rays were negative but then aren't all X-Rays? It didn't seem intentional, Jeet just love to hug that plate.
Will there be more hit batmens today. Normally with Pedro on the mound you could bet on it. Now Petey has to bat himself, it will be interesting to see if he changes his style. Ofcourse Martinez has been a model citizen with the Mets. As they use to say in Brooklyn "Wait Til Next Year".
After yesterday's humiliating 7-1 loss It will be Carl Pavano who is coming off a complete game shutout again the above mentioned Martinez.
Following the game on YES is the premiere of Center Stage with George Steinbrenner , there will be an encore tonight ay 9PM. Check your local listings.
