Who Hits Who....

Every starting pitcher has hitters they own and others that own them. Today's starters Chien-Ming Wang and Roy Halladay are no different. Shannon Stewart will replace Matt Stairs who is out with a hip ailment. From The Star Ledger:
Jason Giambi has hit Roy Halladay well, .315 with three homers in 54 at bats, and Robinson Cano is 5-for-13 (.385) with two doubles and two homers against Halladay. But Hideki Matsui is 7-for-34 (.206) against Halladay.

Wang last year was 0-2 against Toronto, with a 6.35 ERA over three starts. He has a 2.23 ERA against the Jays in his career at Yankee Stadium, 12.46 at Rogers Centre. Aaron Hill hits Wang particularly hard: 9-for-14, three doubles and a triple. Frank Thomas is 1-for-11 (.091) against Wang.
Wang on carpet equals Kei Igawa. At home he's Brandon Webb.
