Here is the lineup:
Wang RHP (13-6, 4.09)
Pregame chatter: Derek Jeter is out of the lineup. Joe Torre said yesterday that the shortstop is “pretty banged up” and needs the time. I also suspect Hideki Matsui is more banged up than the Yankees are letting on. This will be the fifth time this month that he has been the DH. Godzilla has two big ice packs on his knees after every game. … Yankees are facing Jeremy Bonderman (10-5, 4.65).
Thanks again to Brian Heyman, who in addition to covering the series for me, called in the lineups. I need to catch a plane to Cali today as the Angels series starts tomorrow. It’s crazy that both the Yankees and Angels have to fly from the northeast to Orange County and play the next night. At least neither team has an advantage.
