Game 128 Lineup: Blue Jays vs. Yankees

Lineup vs. Blue Jays:

Derek Jeter SS
Nick Swisher DH
Robinson Cano 2B
Mark Teixeira 1B
Curtis Granderson CF
Eric Chavez 3B
Russell Martin C
Raul Ibanez LF
Ichiro Suzuki RF

RHP David Phelps

Pregame Notes:

— The Yankees traded with the Houston Astros for 1B/OF Steve Pearce. If his name seems familiar, it’s because he was a Yankee from March-June and was traded to the Orioles.

— Big congratulations are in order for David Robertson and his wife Erin who welcomed their first child early this morning.


— Andy Pettitte and A-Rod will have X-Rays at 6pm so there won’t be an update on either of them until after the game.

Enjoy the game everyone!

  1. Hopefully Cano keeps this up. 2 homers already. A red hot Cano down the stretch will be huge.

  2. Tex looks hurt maybe Pearce may play 1B tomorrow.

  3. Nix has to make his first concern the runner on third……either by

    1. Looking the runner back and possibly getting a play on him with a toss to the SS.

    2. Faking a throw to first and getting the runner in a rundown between third and home.

    Going straight to first is the wrong play as it opens up the possibility of the runner scoring the go ahead run.

    • I was just discussing that with someone on Twitter. What Nix should have done was fake the throw to first and then throw home.

      By the way, Mark Teixeira is out for at least the next 2 series after straining his calf.

  4. Yanks let Toronto hang around in this game and it bit them in the ass.

    1) Why did Girardi go to Eppley in the 7th with Phelps rolling along and only 88 pitches?
    Eppley has been atrocious lately. In the last 5 weeks, he’s allowed a .410 Batting Average Against with 16 Hits allowed in 8.1 ip

    2) Why do the yanks use Chavez at 1B instead of McGehee?

    By putting Chavez there you weaken yourself at 1B and 3B. Chavez is great at 3B but has only played 1B 11 games in his career. His back is stiff and you could tell he had trouble bending over for Lowe’s repeated pickoffs. McGehee has played 79 games at 1B this yr. Leave Chavez at 3B and put McGehee at 1B.

  5. Tex out for 2 weeks…..ouch!

    This really hurts vs LHP as we see how weak the lineup will look tomorrow. After Jeter…..Tex & ARod were the team’s best hitters vs LHP.
