Game 109: Royals at Yankees

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Aug 03, 2007 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Here is the lineup:

Damon LF
Cabrera CF
Jeter SS
Rodriguez 3B
Matsui DH
Duncan RF
Cano 2B
Phillips 1B
Molina C
Wang RHP (12-5, 3.61)

Pregame chatter: Jeter hitting third seems to have “get somebody on base so A-Rod gets a fastball and gets this thing over with” written all over it. … Hmm, Shelley in right. Melky better be doing his best Kelly Leak impression out there. … Posada is likely out for several reasons. He probably needs to rest his bruised knee and they want him to catch Phil Franchise tomorrow. … Yanks are facing LHP Odalis Perez (6-9, 5.73).

UPDATE, 6:26 p.m.: This will be the final update from me tonight. I was working on my Sunday copy from home today, just got finished and I’m headed over to the Beacon Theater to see Squeeze and Fountains of Wayne. I promise, that’s it for 80s bands.

Enjoy the game. I think the Wanger will deliver tonight and hopefully Alex gets 500 over and done with.
