     The Yankees now move onto a record of  2-3-1. The Yankees will take on Team USA tomorrow, where Derek Jeter will face his own team. Now that should draw a big audience. How often does that happen? The game will be at 1:15 PM ET at George M. Steinbrenner Field. Phil Hughes will get the start against Roy Oswalt.  I hope Hughes strikes out DJ. Haha.
