Here are the lineups:
DeSalvo (1-0, 1.98)
Garland RHP (2-2, 3.44)
Pregame chatter: Chien-Ming Wang has been ruled out for Sunday. Joe Torre didn’t say who would get the start but indications are it’ll be LHP Chase Wright. … Jason Giambi (sore heel) can DH but he won’t be playing 1B at Shea Stadium this weeekend, at least for the first two games. … Melky is staying in the lineup thanks to his big game last night and, to some degree, Johnny Damon’s sore right calf. Torre said he liked the energy Cabrera had last night. … Scott Proctor is back on the roster, his suspension having finished.
Good idea from one of the readers, let’s make this the in-game thread. I will post any updates I have on this post. That way all the comments can stay together.
I’ll take any other suggestions but this seems like a good idea to me. Thanks.
UPDATE, 2:22 p.m.: As several readers pointed out, Tyler Clippard was pulled from his AAA start after one inning today. It appears Clippard is the choice to start on Sunday against the Mets.
UPDATE, 3:35 p.m.: Jeter and Posada have extended their hitting streaks to 12 games. It is a career-best for Posada. … Fans here applauded with the scoreboard updated with the Mets coming from behind in the ninth inning to stun the Cubs. Lou Piniella is 18-21, just like Joe Torre will be if the Yankees fail to rally.
