Game 64: Nationals at Yankees

Tonight the Yankees will play the first game of a three game series against Manny Acta (yes he is still the manager) and the Natinals Nationals. It’s hard to ever say that the Yankees have to sweep a series, but this is one where maybe we can say it. The Nationals are in my mind the worst team in baseball and their 16-46 record supports that. They are already 20 games behind in their division. Anyway, tonight the Yankees send out the following lineup via PeteAbe to face Shairon Martis of the Nationals:

SS Derek Jeter

LF Johnny Damon

1B Mark Teixeira

3B Alex Rodriguez

2B Robinson Cano

C Jorge Posada

DH Hideki Matsui

RF Nick Swisher

CF Melky Cabrera

And on the hill, Charles Carsten Sabathia

CC Sabathia

Congratulations to the Wang family

Today Chien-Ming Wang and his wife Chia-Ling became parents. Today they welcome Justin Jesse Wang into the family. Congrats Chien-Ming, hopefully this brings good luck to your start tomorrow.

Bye Bye Veras

The Yankees activated Brian Bruney from the DL today, and to make room for him they DFA Jose Veras. This is the move I wanted them to make, but I expected Tomko to get the axe. Hopefully this puts the end to leadoff walks in the 8th inning.

Peace. Don't think I'll miss you.

  1. Ha Bye Bye Veras. Also Friday I will begin the NYPL report on my blog. If you have any catchy names for it let me know.

  2. I am happy that Jose Veras got defranchised and got designated for assignment!! But I am still not sure about Brett Tomko in the long run either!! Now I know why the Nationals are the worst team in baseball with their centerfield defense getting a bad jump on balls or their infield defense along with their pitching including the bullpen!!
