As the Yankees take the field at 5:05 this evening, they send the following lineup via PeteAbe out to face Chris Volstad:
SS Derek Jeter
RF Nick Swisher
1B Mark Teixeira
3B Alex Rodriguez
2B Robinson Cano
C Jorge Posada
LF Melky Cabrera
CF Brett Gardner
LHP Carsten Charles Sabathia (who happens to be a decent hitter with a lifetime .261 AVG with 3 home runs and 13 RBI’s)
Burnett’s suspension lowered
A.J. Burnett’s suspension has been reduced to 5 games, and he started serving it today.
Damon out of the lineup
I haven’t seen any stories yet, but I get the feeling his headaches and fluttering eyes have not gone away. The dropped fly ball last night only further supports my theory.
The boys are back in town
Well, they never really left town, and they came in late last night during the game, but whatever. Alex Rodriguez and Brett Gardner are back in the starting lineup. Obviously Brett won’t be there every day, unless there is something wrong with Damon.
Happy Father’s Day! Make sure you talk to your dad today.
Oh no. CC out of the game in the 2nd inning. He was getting pounded but only gave up 1 run. He left with an injury but it was not clear what was wrong.
CC has left bicep tightness. No tests scheduled. Let’s hope he’s okay.
