Yankees Notebook: Rainy Day Edition

Perhaps after yesterday's proceedings, the baseball gods needed a day off.

The third and final game of the New York Yankees' first 2012 series against the Boston Red Sox was postponed due to rain in Boston, allowing the latter team -- now a paltry 4-10, last in the AL East -- a chance to catch its collective breath. The Yankees, meanwhile head to Texas to begin a three-game series with the Rangers Monday night.

Due to the rainout (no makeup date was announced), manager Joe Girardi announced the Yankees' starting rotation would be moved back by a day.

at Texas
Monday: CC Sabathia
Tuesday: Hiroki Kuroda
Wednesday: Phil Hughes

Thursday: off day

vs. Tigers
Friday: Ivan Nova
Saturday: Sabathia/Freddy Garcia
Sunday: To be announced.

Jeter approaching all-time hit leaders:

Derek Jeter is currently hitting .382 with four homers, a pace of power nearing that of his 1999 season, when he hit a career-high 24. Wallace Matthews of ESPNNewYork.com, citing an article by his coworker Andrew Marchand, puts these numbers into context by estimating Jeter will retire with approximately 3,560 hits -- putting him behind just Stan Musial, Hank Aaron, Ty Cobb and Pete Rose on the all-time hit list.
