Pregame concerns: Cano batting third is strange. Hopefully with him batting ahead of Rodriguez, he'll get better pitches to swing at. However, Cano is a very friendly guy: he has never met a pitch he didn't like. ... Pettitte is 8-4 with a 3.04 ERA in 16 career starts against Oakland. ... Chavez is 5-11 with one RBI against Pettitte. ... Stewart is 25-58 with one home run and eight RBIs against Pettitte. ... Haren is 3-0 with a 3.11 ERA in six career starts against New York. ... Posada is 4-16 against Haren, but he has one home run. ... Matsui has also homered off of Haren in his career. ... Jeter is 6-17 with one RBI against Haren.
