Mark Teixeira is back in the line-up, but Johnny Damon is out with the flu, which buys yet another day for Joe Girardi to tell Xavier Nady that he lost his starting job to The Swish.
Aside from the title, the words to the song aren't all that relevant to the game, but Q-Tip does drop right in with a baseball metaphor:
Drifting, drifting, drifting, drifting, drifting...
The deadly venom, let me start from the beginning,
We always hittin, so yo, there'll be no extra innings,
As I send the mic out the park like Reggie Jackson,
You be the minor leaguer who sees no action.
