Game 5: Yankees vs. Royals 4/11


Jeter SS
Swisher LF
Teixeira 1B
Matsui DH
Posada C
Cano 2B
Nady RF
Ransom 3B
Gardner CF

Pitching: CC Sabathia LHP vs. Horacia Ramirez LHP

Notes: One thing i don't like with today's starting lineup is Matsui is getting the start as DH against the lefty. I know Girardi wants to get him atbats so maybe he could snap out of whatever funk he is in, but the guy has one hit all season. Why not put Swisher in as the DH against the lefty and have Matsui's bat come in later in a pinch hitting situation.

But ofcourse... that's just me... won't be able to cover the beginning of the game today, but i'll join in later.

Update 6:00: 100% overlooked Swisher starting in left, my bad....

Update 9:23: Hey everyone, just joining in... looks like the Yankees and CC are dominating.

Update 9:31: CC looks like he is wearing down a bit, still looks good, but the velocity on his fastball is way down from the 96 it was to start the game.

Update 9:33: O.K. i am officially going to hold my breath on every throw CC is going to make to firstbase.

Update 9:52:
well that's it for CC, 7.2 IP 6 hits 0 BB 0 R 6 Ks. Great start from him.
