Game 64 Lineup: Yankees @ Athletics

It’s a brand new series…with two 1o p.m. games. Boo. Anyway, here is your lineup!

Brett Gardner CF
Robinson Cano 2B
Mark Teixeira 1B
Travis Hafner DH
Kevin Youkilis 3B
Lyle Overbay RF
Ichiro Suzuki LF
Jayson Nix SS
Chris Stewart C

CC Sabathia LHP

Some Notes:

— Yesterday, Brett Gardner won the AL Player of the Week award. He was batting .520/.556/.840 throughout the week.

— Today, Robinson Cano was crowned the Captain of the AL HR Derby Team. He can’t get booed mercifully at Citi Field this year since the Mets are a National Team, so that’s a good thing.

Morning Bits

Good morning everyone!

The Yankees had a day off yesterday and sit two games  in back of the Red Sox in the AL East as they begin a three game series today in Oakland against the A’s.

C.C. Sabathia(6-4, 3.74 ERA) will face Bartolo Colon(7-2, 3.14 ERA) tonight.  Start time is 10:05 ET and it will be televised on YES.

Now on to today’s news and links:

Andrew Marchand breaks down Derek Jeter’s progress as he works his way back on to the field after his injuries.

Zack Meisel of MLB.com has this article about Brett Gardner being named AL Offensive Player Of The Week.

NESN reports that the Yankees had a picture hanging in their war room on draft day to remind them of what type of mental makeup they were looking for in a player.

Have a great day everyone!
