Intrasquad day

Today marks the first time that the 2008 New York Yankees take the field for a "real" game, as the annual intrasquad game is played. The game will begin at 1 p.m.

Here is the pitching schedule, from Peter Abraham:

Mike Mussina will pitch two innings for the “home” team in the intrasquad game today. He’ll be followed by Darrell Rasner, Dan McCutchen, Sean Henn, Jon Albaladejo, Mark Melancon for one inning each.

Jeff Karstens will go two innings for the “away” team with Scott Patterson, Steven Jackson, Billy Traber, Edwar Ramirez, Ross Ohlendorf to follow.
There has been a lot of talk about Mark Melancon making the team out of Spring Training, despite only pitching six innings of professional baseball. I doubt the Yankees will take that chance, but it should be interesting to see how he performs this spring.
