Monday: Tigers vs. Yankees

The traffic is pretty rough out here if you’re going to the game and haven’t left yet, but it should still be navigable. Just be prepared to have to adjust for some blocked streets and barricades. All in all, though, not a bad holiday for baseball.

Edgar Renteria is out of the lineup for a second straight day, but he says he’s fine.

As for Pudge, he’s in the lineup, batting ninth. It’ll be interesting to see what sort of reception he gets here. He talked with reporters this morning and said much of the same things he said when the trade went down, that he tries to be ready for whatever happens and that he loves to win.
