Here is the lineup:

Damon DH
Jeter SS
Abreu RF
Rodriguez 3B
Matsui LF
Posada C
Giambi 1B
Cano 2B
Cabrera CF
Franchise RHP (2-2, 5.35)

Pregame chatter: The Yankees will be facing RHP Andy Sonnanstine (3-9, 6.38). … Thanks to Kevin Devaney for texting me with the lineup. After covering 10 games in a row, I’m sitting this one out.

I just spent some time at the office talking to Henry Freeman, the executive editor of The Journal News and LoHud.Com. He is the founding sports editor of USA Today, a great baseball fan and he is committed to the success of this blog.

There will be more on this to come next week, but we had a serious discussion about the pros and cons of requiring registration to post comments, events we can hold next season, video blogging and other things we can to improve your on-line experience.

Coincidentally, our meeting came a day after we went over 500,000 visits for the month. That’s a new record. We also went over 1 million page views for a month for the first time.

So we’re doing well, but we’re going to try and do even better in the months to come.

UPDATE, 7:54 p.m.: The Sept. 24 game against Toronto (a makeup) will be at 1:05 p.m., not 7:05 p.m. Why? The team starts the final road trip of the season the next day.
