Game 130 Lineup: Blue Jays vs. Yankees

Lineup vs. Blue Jays:

Derek Jeter SS
Nick Swisher 1B
Robinson Cano 2B
Andruw Jones RF
Curtis Granderson CF
Steve Pearce DH
Jayson Nix 3B
Ichiro Suzuki LF
Chris Stewart C

LHP CC Sabathia

Pregame Notes:

Mariano Rivera was in the Yankees clubhouse yesterday and the main reason he was there was because he needed to speak with Rafael Soriano about Monday night. After Soriano listened to Mo, he came out dealing and got the save yesterday. I’m sure we’re all thinking the same thing–Mo should be the pitching coach of the Yankees in the future.

David Robertson is not available out of the pen today after pitching 3 straight days in a row. This is the first time in Robertson’s career with the Yankees that he has pitched 3 days in a row.

Andy Pettitte is going to throw off a mound but that hasn’t been scheduled as of yet. Pettitte believes that he needs 2-3 starts before he would be ready to get a possible post-season start.

  1. jeter is on pace for 220 hits and 104 runs. i hop a big game today,….

  2. Jeter is the greatest player anyone less than 40 ever saw play. Period. End of story. It’s a wrap. Put a ribbon on it.

  3. LOL,.. LOL,… people dont believe it,… but it is true, this will be jeters 14th 100 runs scorted season , out of 17 seasons, and if not for dl stints in 2003, and 20111, and a bad tean in giradis first year in 2008, where jeter had runs of 87 in 118 games, 88 in 150 games, and 84 in 113 games, respectivley,….. this could be jeters 17th 100 run season in a row

    i went over the runs scored the other day

    what jeter is doing is way ahead of rose and rickey at the same moment in time respectivley

    jeters got the shot at both records

    hits and runs

  4. Cano!!! let’s get some runs here!

  5. This is not a pretty game. Yanks getting whipped on the fundamentals again all day by one of the worst teams in the league. In danger of losing 2 of 3 to team that had lost 7 in a row and 15 of their last 18.

    While Toronto scored a run with a squeez play today and beat us Monday on a great base-running play, the Yanks have:

    - have made 3 errors
    - have failed to score just by making outs in 5 different innings
    - Ichiro failed to get a bunt down with man on 2nd, no outs
    - A.Jones butchered a play in RF

    Yanks are 0-46 when trailing after 8 innings……..remember 2009? How many walk off wins did we have, like 17?

  6. a. jones is toast

  7. Cano didn’t even look like he tried his last time up

  8. Something is going on with the team that we don’t knw about

  9. Swisher is probably gathering some players together to sing Karaoke…..and then they are going to call hairspray Hal….about Girardi..


  11. Not a good series before they play BAL & TB for the next 10 games now. The lead could be as little as 2 by the time they host BALT on Friday.

  12. Fish. – has there ever been a team that had 10 players with 15 hrs in a season?

    4 players short right now

    Jeter 14
    Martin 14
    Jones 13
    Chavez 13

    Which of those players are most likely to NOT get there?

  13. Twasp – I don’t have a subscription to Baseball reference but I would bet that perhaps no team has done it yet. Yanks are in a unique situation because they have had several injuries giving other players a lot of ABs. In addition, they employ a lot of platoon players.

    But the biggest reason is they LOOOOVE HR hitters. They seemingly prefer players with HR power over players that hit for higher average and can put the ball in play.

    i’d say all of those players are likely to get to 15. Gun to my head I’d say A.Jones doesn’t get it. Since he is a RH platoon bat, he will get the least amount of ABs the rest of the way. he’s also playing very poorly and may see less time once the rosters expand and guys like ARod and tex get healthy and take DH at bats.

  14. Yeah I agree Jones may mess this record up.
