8/4 – Yankees at Blue Jays

Not much news here at Rogers Centre, but plenty of talk about this series and the problems it presents for the Yankees — chief among them the presence of Mr. Roy Halladay. The Yankees have struggled against him historically, but then again, so has everybody else. And more problems await Wednesday, when the Yankees don’t know what they’ll get out of Sergio Mitre. Stealing a victory from Halladay tonight seems pretty important at this point.

Here are the lineups with the roof closed and the rain coming down in Toronto:

YANKEES (63-42)

Damon LF
Teixeira 1B
Rodriguez 3B
Matsui DH
Posada C
Cano 2B
Cabrera CF
Hinske RF

Pitching: Andy Pettite (8-6, 4.51)

BLUE JAYS (51-54)

Hill 2B
Lind DH
Millar 1B
Wells CF
Rios RF
Encarnacion 3B
Barajas C
Bautista LF

Pitching: Roy Halladay (11-4, 2.68)

NOTES: Damon leads all Major Leaguers with 30 career hits off Halladay. He is 30-for-86 (.349) in his career, with five doubles, a triple and two home runs … with a win, Pettitte will tie CC Sabathia with 16 wins in the month of August since 2005, tops in the bigs … Damaso Marte struck out two, walked one and allowed a hit in 0.2 scoreless innings of a rehab assignment with Triple-A Scranton on Tuesday … Joba Chamberlain threw an extra bullpen session in preparation for his start Thursday, which will come on seven days’ rest … Eric Hinske started in right field Tuesday in place of Nick Swisher, who is 2-for-14 lifetime off Halladay. Hinske is 6-for-24. “If your numbers are OK against Roy, you’re doing all right,” Girardi said.”

Bob,
Enjoy the game tonight. If you’re sitting in the bleachers, you have a good chance to catch a ball thrown by Mitre!

Well, I’m going to the game tonight in Toronto. A no-name pitcher is pitching for Toronto. I can’t even pronounce his name. Mitre has been working on his mechanics since his last debacle. Can you fix mechanics that quickly? It should be interesting to see. I’m skeptical. Hopefully the yankees can sweep this mini series and stay ahead of the Sox and the Rays. Look forward to reading your blogs after the game.
