Game 25: Red Sox at Yankees; When was the last time we saw a game?

 

Yesterday’s game was rained out. Today’s game could eventually be played, but it will definitely be a delayed start. The forecast does not look promising, but hopefully there is a “window.” 

Lineup via Peter Abraham (you can also check out the pre-game press conference on Pete’s blog)

SS Derek Jeter

LF Johnny Damon

1B Mark Teixeira

RF Nick Swisher

2B Robinson Cano

DH Jorge Posada

CF Melky Cabrera

C Jose Molina

3B Angel Berroa 

And on the mound, Phil Hughes

Side Notes

  • Girardi callled Teixeira “gritty” in his pre-game press conference. I thought only the Red Sox were “gritty”? What is this blasphemy!
  • Phil Hughes was scheduled to start yesterday, but he has been pushed back to tonight. I am not sure what the Yankees will be doing  with the rotation, but Aceves could factor into it for a spot start, I am not saying he will but it could be possible.
    "I wonder if I'll pitch tonight?"

    "I wonder if I'll pitch tonight?"

     

  • Alex Rodriguez played another extended Spring Training game today. He went 1-6 with a home run (it was probably un-clutch). He played the field for 7 innings, but somehow did not get to make a play. He could possibly return this Friday. Yay!
  • I really don’t like that Berroa is playing today. It may be something personal, but I would rather see Pena out there. If it were up to me, Pena would play everyday (until Alex gets back) and Berroa would be a bench warmer. I just think that Pena’s defense would be worth more than anything Berroa can give us on offense.

Update 9:02

According to Peter Abraham, we will have baseball. First pitch is scheduled for 9:20.
