Nightly Notes: Postseason, Hughes, Teixeira

Good evening everyone and what a great game by the Yankees that was jump started by the Eric Chavez home run in the 3rd inning. Orioles and Yankees win but Texas lost the first game. If Texas Rangers win the second game then the Yankees, Orioles and Rangers would all punch their ticket into the postseason whether it would be the division or the wild card. Here are some nightly notes.

— Speaking of the postseason, in case you haven’t read it, I posted an article of what the 25 man roster should be for the 2012 postseason. It could work whether the Yankees get the wild card or get the division.

— ESPN New York is calling Phil Hughes ‘useless’ after giving up 5 runs in 4 2/3 inning today in the Yankees 9-6 victory over the Blue Jays.

— Mark Teixeira is slated to return to the Yankees lineup tomorrow. That could give the Yankees some great depth in their lineup.

Also some notes:

— Jayson Nix will miss 10-14 days with a Grade 1 strain to his left hip flexor. He received the injury on Thursday while diving for a groundball and said it had been sore ever since.

— IF the Yankees have to play a tie breaker with the Orioles then Andy Pettitte would get the start. Not CC Sabathia.

— Also Eduardo Nunez said that he’s going to play Winter Ball this winter as the shortstop. Great. So that means he’ll be in top notch shape come Spring Training, right?

  1. If Jeter goes 5 for 5 tomorrow his average will be 322.963

    If Cabrera goes 0 for 5 tomorrow his average wil be 322.538

    The Batting title is still in reach for Jeter

    3 games to go

    If Jeter goes 7 for 15 his average wil be 321.168

    If Cabrera goes 3 for 15 his average will be 322.169

    If Jeter goes 8 for 15 his average wil be 322.628

    The batting title is still possible with a big last 3 days

  2. Going to the playoffs….well, the play-in game at least. Which isn’t really the postseason to me. So it only means one thing – the Yanks need to win the AL East! Should help me keep my mind off of school and if the Giants lose tonight….postseason/October weather is in the air and I can’t wait.
