Game 34: Yanks at the Rogers Centre

First let me start off with the starting lineup

SS Derek Jeter

LF Johnny Damon

1B Mark Teixeira

3B Alex Rodriguez

DH Hideki Matsui

RF Nick Swisher

2B Robinson Cano

CF Brett Gardner

C Francisco Cervelli

And on the mound, Carsten Charles Sabathia

Jeet is back

Derek Jeter rejoins the starting lineup tonight. He missed the last two games with a sore oblique.

No Melk today

Melky is not in the starting lineup tonight, he has been hitting very well of late, but I guess Girardi wanted him to have a day off.

Burn Damon Burn

Johnny Damon has been on fire lately! In the last nine games he is batting .477 with 16 RBI’s. In addition, over that span of nine games he has hit 16 extra base hits (5 of them homers), with a least one each game. He is making a strong case to be resigned. However, it is early and the Yankees look like they are leaning against it.

A Teixeira spotting?

Reportedly, Mark Teixeira was spotted at the Yankee game last night going 2-4. We will see if he shows up to the rest of the Yankee games this year. In the beginning of the year, a man with similar looks to Teixeira played for the Yankees and batted to a sub-.200 average.

Pick on someone your own size

Yesterday Brett Gardner hit a 2 run home run, the first homer of his career. When Brett got back to his locker after the game he saw a baseball lying there and it read,  “First career home run, solo shot of Sam Richman for Brett Gardner. 05-14-09.” The problem was that Gardner actually hit a two run home run, off of Scott Richmond, on 05-13-09. After seeing the ball, Gardner said, ” I hope that’s not really the ball.” Fortuanetly for Brett, it was not the ball. The real ball with the real information was given to Gardner later on.
