Game 24: Yankees vs. Blue Jays

Hello on a sunny Saturday afternoon, as we get ready for the second game of this three-game series between the Yankees and the Blue Jays.

Here are the lineups:

BLUE JAYS (13-13)

Rajai Davis CF, Yunel Escobar SS, Jose Bautista RF, Adam Lind 1B, Juan Rivera RF, David Cooper DH, Edwin Encarnacion 3B, Jose Molina C, Mike McCoy 2B

Pitching: Kyle Drabek RHP (2-0, 3.30 ERA)

YANKEES (14-9)

Derek Jeter SS, Curtis Granderson CF, Mark Teixeira 1B, Robinson Cano 2B, Nick Swisher RF, Eric Chavez 3B, Jorge Posada DH, Russell Martin C, Brett Gardner LF

Pitching: A.J. Burnett RHP (3-1, 3.52 ERA)

First pitch / TV info: 4:05 p.m. ET / YES Network

Bombers bits: Just a day off for Alex Rodriguez, who is available to pinch-hit. Joe Girardi thinks A-Rod might be getting away from using his legs at the plate, a sign of fatigue. A-Rod left seven men on base last night. … Over their last six games, Yankees starters have posted a 1.34 ERA (40 1/3 innings pitched, six earned runs) and are 2-2 … Robinson Cano and Nick Swisher have played every inning of 2011 in the field, according to the Elias Sports Bureau … Cano is tied for fourth in the Majors with eight homers, but six have been solo shots.

Back in time: On this date in 1923, the Yankees signed 23-year-old Lou Gehrig from Columbia University. On this date in 1939, Gehrig plays the last of his 2,130 consecutive games, going 0-for-4 in a 3-2 loss to the Senators at Yankee Stadium.

Random media guide fact: A.J. Burnett had his Central Arkansas High School jersey retired on Dec. 6, 2002.

Not much happening on this blog any more. Where have all the bloggers gone? Need to catch up to the series with the Tigers to comment on. Anyway, a good win last night. The Yankees let the lead slip away but came through in the 9th. Good old Swisher. And Mo was his usual self.

My error Bryan. Not a prospect, but a pick up in the off season and a good back up but not for full time DH. He doesn’t have the power.

Pingback: Game 24: Yankees vs. Blue Jays « Bombers Beat | Yankees News Source

ARod was terrible last night, fatigue or whatever. Struck out, hit into DP, didn’t drive runners in, didn’t get key hit. He was allround awful. Mind you Tex wasn’t a lot better nor half of the Yankees team including Garcia. it was just a bad night for the Yankees period. They squeaked out a win today even though they had a fairly healthy lead of 5-2. AJ wasn’t great. And after the Yankees got the 5 runs early they didn’t do much offensively the rest of the game. The bull pen did their job tonight. But a win is a win. Let’s hope they can win the series tomorrow. If Girardi rotates DHs it’s probably a good thing because Posada is really not doing anything at the plate. He has 6 homers but his average is way down and he strikes out way too much. He’s had his day. But who have they got for DH? Jones is hopeless. What, he struck out three times last night? And Chavez is a good prospect but he’s not going to be a good DH. Is here someone else in the minor system they can bring up as DH? Otherwise I don’t know what the plan is unless they are going to trade for someone.

Eric Chavez is a prospect?
