TB v.s NYY Postponed – 8/14/11

TB v.s NYY Postponed – 8/14/11

Today’s New York Yankees game v.s the Tampa Bay Rays has been postponed due to rain in the NYC area. No makeup date has been announced as of yet. This is the second rain-out between the Yankees & Rays this season with the Yankees already having to make up 1 game in late September.

UPDATE: The August 14th rained out game will be played in a DH on September 21 both at 1:05pm & 7:05pm.

Morning Bits: Proctor, Jeter, Burnett

A Yankee win and a Red Sox loss that math is great any day in my book.

Enjoy the day everyone…

and here are your links….

* Yankees sign Scott Proctor to a minor league deal.

* Cashing in on Jeter’s 3,000 hit has everyone making money.

* Garcia gets a cut on his finger so AJ Burnett will start for him.

Bryan Hoch with the Recap:

NEW YORK — Jorge Posada dropped the bat and followed the trail of his deep drive into the right-field seats, delivering a message loud and clear to the Yankees: I’m not done yet.

Pulled from regular designated-hitter duty last week, Posada returned to the lineup in dramatic fashion on Saturday, belting a grand slam and collecting six RBIs as the Yankees rolled to a 9-2 victory over the Rays.

“It’s special,” Posada said. “I got an opportunity today to play. It’s tough to sit around. It’s not easy to be sitting here and looking at everybody playing. It’s tough.”

Posada had not played since being informed last Sunday at Fenway Park that the Yankees wanted to try a new direction with their DH slot, setting no clear plan for getting Posada back into action.
