7/1 – Yankees vs. Mariners

The Yankees will try to avert a series sweep this afternoon here at Yankee Stadium, where CC Sabathia will try to jump into the role of stopper for them.

“Our homestand hasn’t gotten off the way we wanted it,” Joe Girardi said. “CC could be really helpful in this situation.”

They probably couldn’t have picked a better guy. Sabathia is undefeated in his last 14 starts at Yankee Stadium dating back to July 18 of last year, posting a 10-0 record with a 2.10 ERA.

Brett Gardner is back in the lineup today, although Girardi said the Yankees had a Plan B in place just in case something happened later on. A-Rod will serve as the DH today, something they discussed during the series at Dodger Stadium over the weekend.

Chone Figgins 2B
Russell Branyan 1B

Gotta get a run for CC!

5 hits & 2 runs in 7 innings so far is pathetic. Wouldn’t it have been better to keep Hinske for LF platoon/ 3rd base when A-Rod Dh’d? Hinkse is betterh than Winn & Thames. Who’s the GM? Oh yeah.

I’m not sure how the rotation led to Hughes vs Lee & Vasquez vs. Hernandez. Yankees’ 5 spot vs Mariners’ 1 spot & Yankees’ 4 spot vs Mariners’ 2 spot. No wonder they lost both. I don’t care how many games over 500 they are, the Yankees suck this season. Let’s hope for the wild card.

C.C. was tiring and he should of been taken out of the game before facing the Mariners power hitter. I said it to myself just before Branyan got up. Branyan has power and if he hits one out against a tired CC, it would be a wasted effort by CC.

CC has been so clutch in must-win games! Let’s hope he can keep up this dominating start as the Yanks hold onto a 1-0 lead.
