Quick hit: Today's Yankees-Phillies game may be up in the air

According to Eric Boland of Newsday:

A pounding rain here in the Tampa area. Yankees buses aren't scheduled to leave for Clearwater until 11:15. Game still up in the air.

Damn that iffy Florida weather.

If the game does go on as scheduled, here are the backups and relievers:

And one of the best things I read this morning also comes from the Lohud Yankee blog. When Joe Girardi was asked why he didn't insert Ichiro into the leadoff spot, he said, “I don’t know. I just put him second.”

Well, okay then.

UPDATE at 11:11a:Joba Chamberlain just posted a link to a video which shows just how lovely it is in Florida this morning.
