Game 109: Yankees vs. White Sox

CHICAGO — We’re a half-hour from game time, and it has already been quite the news-making day. Phil Hughes will be given at least one more start, CC Sabathia won American League Pitcher of the Month and Major League Baseball said it’ll take Alex Rodriguez‘s involvement in a high-stakes poker game “very seriously.”

Here are the lineups, as the Yankees look to make it six straight and 10 of their last 13. Paul Konerko (sore left calf/knee) remains out for the White Sox …

YANKEES (66-42)
Brett Gardner, LF
Derek Jeter, SS
Curtis Granderson, CF
Mark Teixeira, 1B
Robinson Cano, 2B
Nick Swisher, RF
Eric Chavez, 3B
Jorge Posada, DH
Russell Martin, C

Pitching: RH A.J. Burnett (8-9, 4.23 ERA)

WHITE SOX (52-56)
Juan Pierre, LF
Omar Vizquel, 2B
Carlos Quentin, DH
Adam Dunn, 1B
Alexei Ramirez, SS
A.J. Pierzynski, C
Alex Rios, CF
Alejandro De Aza, RF
Brent Morel, 3B

Pitching: RH Gavin Floyd (9-9, 3.96 ERA)

Agree 100% with you Allan. My suggestion is to keep Hughes & Nova in the rotation and ship A Jerk to the bullpen for the remaindor of the season. Then in the offseason I’d peddle his @ss with $$$$ to the other league. He started out in Florida maybe he’d go back there. He’s from Arkansas send him to the Astros or the Cards. He is close to being an Ed Whitson bust in free agency. Did NOT like it when the Yankees signed him and still don;t. Last night’s performance was INEXCUSEABLE.

Not really acceptable to have to yank your pitcher in 4.1 when you’ve put up so many runs, i went to bed after the third last night thinking “ah well, easy win for AJ” and nearly choked this morning when i woke up to see Wade as the pitcher of record. Problem is that besides the fact the trade deadline is passed, who’d want him on his contract?

This team would be a *ell of alot more fun to watch and cheer for without the ARod soap opera and the A Jerk meltdowns.

I have had it with A Jerk. 13-1 and this waste of a pitcher cannot get through 5 innings???? this series settles the rotation. CC, Colon, Freddie, Nova and Hughes. No debate. A Jerk goes to the bullpen for mop up duty. This clown is a $16 million waste of a pitcher, a complete loser. Enough of the excuses, enough of his BAD outings. At the end of the year send this Ed Witson Clone to the Mariners.
