I did not get to see last night’s game, and I am glad about that. I did not see any poor pitching performances or any failed opportunities. Anyway, I will be watching today’s game. Here is the lineup:
SS Derek Jeter
LF Johnny Damon
1B Mark Teixeira
3B Alex Rodriguez
DH Hideki Matsui
2B Robinson Cano
RF Nick Swisher
CF Melky Cabrera
C Francisco Cervelli
And on the mound, Jobs Chamberlain
It feels good to see “Alex Rodriguez in the 4 spot.
I think Teixeira could use a day off both mentally and physically. I think his wrist might not be feeling so well.
Joba will be pitching today despite having a popped blood vessel in his thumb. He said he does not feel it; it can’t be too serious since the Yankees are letting him pitch.
I really am impressed with Cervelli’s enthusiasm behind the plate.
