Rays Up Next
UP NEXT: YANKEES
By MARC TOPKIN
Published April 2, 2007
WHAT'S NEW: Are the Yankees, dare we say, vulnerable, with Rays castoff Josh Phelps in the starting lineup at first base and a rotation that suddenly seems fragile and questionable, with Carl Pavano, Kei Igawa and Darrell Rasner holding down three spots and Andy Pettitte and Mike Mussina having their own issues? Also different: Bernie Williams won't be in pinstripes.
KEY STAT: Closer Mariano Rivera has allowed one home run (and nine earned runs) in 57 appearances against the Rays.
WHO'S HOT: LF Hideki Matsui hit .339 for the spring and is primed for a big season after being injured much of last year.
WHO'S NOT: It was only spring training, but DH Jason Giambi hit .236 and Johnny Damon .220.
CONNECTIONS: Rays senior adviser Don Zimmer was a Yankees coach for eight seasons. Phelps and Miguel Cairo are former Rays.
SERIES HISTORY: The Yankees lead 101-47 overall, 54-19 at Yankee Stadium.
