Game 123: Tigers at Yankees

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Aug 18, 2007 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Here is the lineup:

Cabrera CF
Jeter SS
Abreu RF
Rodriguez 3B
Matsui LF
Posada C
Giambi DH
Cano 2B
Phillips 1B
Clemens RHP (4-5, 4.00)

Pregame chatter: The Yankees are facing RHP Chad Durbin (7-5, 4.68). … This will be the first game for Clemens since Aug. 7 when he dealt out some justice in Toronto and got suspended for it. … Jose Tabata’s season is over as he needs surgery on his right wrist. He went .307/.371/.392 for Class A Tampa.

Thanks to Brian Heyman for calling in the lineup.

jason.jpgUPDATE, 6:03 p.m.: Came inside to catch an inning. The Yankees will take two runs over six innings from Roger Clemens every time, even if he does give up 10 hits.

I would assume the bullpen plan is Krazy Kyle, the Viz and Mo for 7-8-9.

Big hits by Robbie Cano and Andy Phillips there. Yes, Andy Phillips.

(Here is my nephew climbing the swingset in the Favre jersey we got him in Green Bay last fall).
