Game 72: Yankees at Braves

Let’s start off the post with tonight’s starting lineup for the New York Yankees via PeteAbe:

SS Derek Sanderson Jeter

LF Johhny David Damon

1B Mark Charles Teixeira

3B Alex Emmanuel Rodriguez

C Jorge Rafael Posada

RF Nick Thompson Swisher

CF Brett M. Gardner

2B Bryan Cody Ransom

LHP Andrew Eugene Pettitte

Do you like the full names? I’m not a fan of “Eugene.”

Cano a late a scratch

Robinson was in the lineup but right around 4:00 he was scratched from the lineup. No word on why. I will have updates as the come along

Melky sitting for the 2nd consecutive day?

This seems kind of strange to me, and if I read or see anything about it I will post updates.

The price of Jose Veras

Yesterday, the Yankees sent Jose Veras packing to Cleveland. Today via Tyler Kepner we find out that the Yankees received over 20,000 in return. Doesn’t seem like much to me, but hey it’s not as bad as what the Yankees paid the White Sox this off season to acquire Chris Stewart, Brian Cashman sent the White Sox 1$. I love Cashman’s quote: “Some people get cute and send 100 pennies, I don’t have time for cute.” Yeah I guess he was too busy signing CC, Mark, and A.J.

Hughes gets a tattoo

Yesterday was Phil Hughes’ birthday. His birthday present to himself was a tattoo of the Bible verse Philippians 4:13, according to Tyler Kepner. He got the tattoo from Nick Swisher’s tattoo artist in Atlanta, oh and Nick also got a tattoo. I don’t really recommend tattoos because almost everybody seems to regret them, but at least both Phil and Nick got the tattoos on the inside of their upper left arms where they shouldn’t be seen.

Update 4:36
Cano’s left wrist is wrapped up in tape. He should play tomorrow.

Update 6:00
Melky and Matsui have the flu. That’s why Melky hasn’t been playing.
