9/29 – Yankees vs. Royals
Hey folks, Anthony DiComo back at the Stadium, where Joe Girardi announced that CC Sabathia, Andy Pettitte and A.J. Burnett will pitch this weekend in Tampa Bay — in that order. Which means, well, nothing.
The Yankees still have the option to pitch Pettitte in either Game 2 or Game 3, and Girardi made it sound today like he’ll wait until the last possible moment before deciding. There are pros and cons to both scenarios, to be sure.
As for this week, the Yankees put together a far more normal-looking lineup Tuesday against the Royals. Only Robinson Cano, Jorge Posada and Melky Cabrera are missing. Girardi said he will continue to give his position players regular rest until Sunday, when the entire crew of regulars will play one last game together.
|Pitching: RHP Anthony Lerew (0-1, 3.86).|
|Pitching: RHP A.J. Burnett (12-9, 4.19).|
