Yankees vs. Blue Jays 5/14


Jeter SS
Damon LF
Teixeira 1B
Rodriguez 3B
Matsui DH
Swisher RF
Cano 2B
Gardner CF
Cervelli C

Pitching: CC Sabathia LHP vs. Brian Tallet LHP


Melky Cabrera isn't in the starting lineup, probably getting a days rest and Brett Gardner definitely earned himself another start after his performance yesterday.

Jeter is back in the lineup after missing the first two games with an oblique pull, Matsui is back in the lineup aswell.

Maybe Joe Girardi should pull Mark Teixeira out of the spot light a bit and bat him 5th or 6th until he gets his act together, yesterday was a start, but he's still hitting 202. Meanwhile you could bat A-Rod 3rd with Matsui cleanup, or the other way around, but maybe Teix's struggles have come from the pressure being put on him in the 3 hole.

...back with updates from the game...

Update 7:37: it's 1-0 Yankees on a Nick Swisher bases loaded walk to force in a run, we're in the bottom of the 2nd and CC is on the hill.

Update 8:10: 1-1 after Alex Rios just hit a solo shot to center.

Update 8:25: i thought Al Leiter was the MLB networks problem now?

...meanwhile, it's 2-1 Blue Jays now... Rod Barajas doubled off the wall in right and it was bobbled by Swisher which allowed Rolen to unfortunate.

Update 9:24: I had to step out, but it's 2-2 now in the bottom of the 7th, not sure how the yanks tied it up, but they did.

Update 9:34: Matsui led off the top of the 8th with a homerun to right center, it's now 3-2 yankees.
