This afternoon, the Yankees will play the rubber game of this three game series against the Angels. If the Yankees do come out victorious today, they will have won their first six series of 2010. That would be pretty impressive. Here is the lineup they will run out today via Chad Jennings…
SS Derek Jeter
RF Nick Swisher
1B Mark Teixeira
3B Alex Rodriguez
2B Robinson Cano
DH Jorge Posada
LF Marcus Thames
CF Curtis Granderson
C Francisco Cervelli
RHP Javier Vazquez
Nick Johnson Update
Nick Johnson is not playing today again as he is suffering from a sore back. By resting him again today, he will get three days off (yesterday, today, and tomorrow which is an off day). He is expected back in the lineup on Tuesday.
Chan Ho Park Update
Chan Ho Park who is suffering from a hamstring issue is expected to travel to Tampa. The Yankees and Park hope that the warm weather of Tampa, Florida will help loosen up Park’s hamstring. Park tried the same thing last year when he was hurt and he claims it helped him.
“The weather was so warm, it helped heal quickly. I felt much better. It is still a little bit tight, so that makes me feel that I’m not ready to throw on the mound. The next couple of days, it’s going to feel much better. Hopefully I’m ready to throw a bullpen next week, and come back right away.”
While I think the whole Rodriguez-Braden argument is ridiculously silly, I find this picture created by Flip Flop Fly Ball to be very funny.
I’m sorry for the lack of posts lately, I’ve been pretty busy the past few days and also these West coast games have thrown my schedule out of wack.
