Starting for the Yankees – sort of – Dave Robertson

It seems Dave Robertson – and not Sergio Mitre, as we’d guessed – will start the sixth inning for the Yankees. Why Joe Girardi had to keep it top secret is somewhat mysterious; Ron Gardenhire said last night that Brian Duensing is his man. In any event, that’s who it’ll be. Game time for the resumption of play is 5:05 p.m. ET. 

We were in our pre-game (or was it mid-game?) session with Girardi when Derek Jeter saw the cluster of reporters around the manager in the dugout.
“Joe, have you hit the panic button yet?” Jeter asked, never breaking stride on his way to the bat rack.
“No, I have not, Jeet,” Girardi replied. 
With four innings to play in the suspended game and nine more after it, Girardi said he wouldn’t stay away from using Joba Chamberlain or Mariano Rivera to save him for the second contest.
“You do whatever it takes,” he said. “If you have a chance, you manage the first game like you’re only playing one game. You don’t know what’s going to happen in the second [game].”

  • Alfredo Aceves was seen in New York today by team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad for his lower back disc problem. He’ll continue to rehab but will not throw.
