New York looking for reason to be hopeful

Hot on the heals of the Yankees' 14-3 loss to Baltimore (hmmm... losing 14 to 3 must be one of the worst Yankee losses ever... oh yeah... 22-0!) they seem to be grasping for reasons to not be freaking about the upcoming Redsox visit.

New York's Newsday whistles through the graveyard:

...rotations have emerged that should have the Yankees with three of their top four starters and the Red Sox without Curt Schilling and Tim Wakefield when Boston rolls into town next Friday.

Orlando Hernandez is on schedule to start the opener of the three-game series, with Jon Lieber starting the second game and Mike Mussina the third in what could be another classic matchup with Pedro Martinez.
