Three-and-a-half hours later … Play Ball!

Manager Joe Girardi announced Joba Chamberlain’s injury more than six hours ago. The Miami Heat and Dallas Mavericks are at halftime of an NBA Finals game that started at 9 p.m. And still, there is a large contingent of Yankees (and, tonight at least, Mavericks) fans waiting to see if the Yankees can snap their five-game home losing streak to the Red Sox. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, it marks the first time Boston has won its first five road decisions in the Bronx in any season since 1913.

CC Sabathia’s first pitch to Jacoby Ellsbury came in at 10:32 p.m. I will be providing in-game updates on Twitter (@Matt_Fortuna) throughout night and, eventually, early morning.

Here are tonight’s lineups:

RED SOX (35-26)
Jacoby Ellsbury CF
Marco Scutaro 2B
Adrian Gonzalez 1B
Kevin Youkilis 3B
David Ortiz DH
Jed Lowrie SS
Carl Crawford LF
Mike Cameron RF
Jason Varitek C

Pitching: Josh Beckett RHP (4-2, 2.01)

YANKEES (33-26)
Derek Jeter SS
Curtis Granderson CF
Mark Teixeira 1B
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Robinson Cano 2B
Nick Swisher RF
Jorge Posada DH
Brett Gardner LF
Francisco Cervelli C

Pitching: CC Sabathia LHP (7-3, 2.80)

Posted this before the sweep…..This team is a joke! It’s sad to see a team w/ no heart. The season is over before the All Star break. Why bother playing for the WC when you can’t beat the Blosox.

No sense of trading anyone. Only Granderson & Cano have value. This team needs an enema!

I’m with you Seeknay. Thought the game would be postponed so went to bed. Swept by the Sox. They’ve killed us all year, especially in Yankee stadium. Where’s the confidence and swagger in your own ball park?The Yankees should own their own field and not allow themselves to be intimidated and run over by the opposition, especially by the Bosox. Humiliating series loss and now 2 games behind. Sox playing like everyone thought they’d play with off season trades and starting pitching. Making up for their bad start. We’re not in the same league at this point and we’ve got guys dropping like flies with injuries, the same as Boston had last year. this looks like it could be Boston’s year. We need to do something to stop the bleeding. Again, Girardi left his starter in too long. When things started to fall apart in the 7th Girardi should have pulled CC, but Robertson came in and the way he pitched they would have got the hits and runs anyway probably. Now no Joba to team with Robertson and no Soriano so we’re really hurting for 7th and 8th inning relief..

SWEPT for the 2nd time by our rivals in our ballpark. It’s the way it happened. Dominated in all facets of the game; starting pitching, timely hitting and defense. Additionally, this team showed NO life at all and as far as I am concerned Girardi managed like a Single A manager, Can Romine or Montero catch as bad as Cervelli has in this series. How many throwing errors did this guy have? The Yankees collectively played like a team in trouble and knew that Boston was a better team. The pitching staff is in disarray and we are about to find out if Larry Rothschild is worth the $$$ they are paying him. Time to let some of the youngsters downstairs see if they can cut it. We already know that some of the ones on the field can’t.

Right now Romine is out with a concussion and Montero with an eye infection.

And the good news is Montero has been cleared to play tonight!

This team is in SERIOUS trouble. Either there needs to be trades made or it is time to bring up some youngsters and see whether or not they can pitch and play in the ML. I have NEVER seen so many pitchers go down with injuries.

Granderson gets hit. Where are the warnings? I’d throw right at FATSO Papi AGAIN. Francona is the dirtiest manager in the AL. This entire series has been HBP. Girardi NEEDS to remember this and PAYBACK this team.
