Game 138 and 139: Rays at Yankees

Today, Labor Day, which looks to be a very nice day, the Yankees will play a day night double header against the Rays. I’m really looking forward to it because it means twice as much Yankee baseball as usual. Hopefully the Yankees can win the first game, which would take the pressure off AJ Burnett in the second game, plus it is rare for a team to win both games of a double header. Anyway, here are the lineups via Pete Abe:

Game 1 – 1:05pm

SS Derek Jeter

RF Nick Swisher

1B Mark Teixeira

3B Alex Rodriguez

2B Robinson Cano

C Jorge Posada

DH Eric Hinske

LF Melky Cabrera

CF Brett Gardner – Welcome back!

And on the mound, CC Sabathia

Game 2 – 7:05pm


The boys are back in town

Brett Gardner is back with the big team, and Shelley Duncan will be too according to Pete Abe Duncan has been recalled.

A couple videos to pass the time

Sorry for the shortage of posts lately, with the summer ending and school starting I’ve been a bit busy lately, hopefully when things settle down I’ll be able to provide regular posts.

  1. I’m glad to hear Shelley will be back after his brother Chris has been struggling to find work after being traded to Boston then being cut by those same Boston Red Sox. Hopefully the both of them can get their acts together and have successful Major League careers.

    • I don’t think Shelley or Chris Duncan will ever have “successful” Major League careers, I feel that their ceiling is as a bench player, which isn’t too bad when you are in the Majors.

  2. The Yankees magic number is down to 17 after the Yankees game 1 win over the Rays and the Red Sox lost to the White Sox!!!!

  3. I know that but I hope Derek Jeter gets his four hits and be the all-time Yankees hits leader surpassing Lou Gehrig tonight or tomorrow and get it over with hopefully!!! And the Yankees magic number could drop to 16 tonight if the Yankees win the second game of the doubleheader!!!
