Spring training Game 6: Yankees at Reds

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Mar 06, 2008 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Here’s the earliest lineup post ever:

Damon DH
Molina C
Abreu RF
Giambi 1B
Betemit 2B
Jackson LF
Gardner CF
Woodward 3B
Gonzalez SS

Chien-Ming Wang (2-3 innings, 40 pitches)
Darrell Rasner (2-3 innings, 40 pitches)
Kyle Farnsworth
Sean Henn
Dan Giese
Billy Traber

Aaron Harang is starting. That’s all we know so far. Hopefully Hall of Fame nice guy Andy Phillips gets a few hacks against his old teammates.

Notes: Hold onto something solid but Joe Girardi seems to love Kyle Farnsworth. He said he would use Krazy Kyle on back-to-back days, in the middle of innings, etc. Farnsworth has changed his mechanics (specifically when he breaks his hands) on the advice of Dave Eiland to eliminate how much he dragged his arm last season. That tended to flatten out his slider. When thrown right, it’s a great pitch for him. … Girardi had the “throw strikes” talk with Ian Kennedy and Joba Chamberlain after their nibblesome outings yesterday. Nibblesome is probably not a word but if you’ve read this far, you know what I mean. … Hideki Matsui will be getting in a game soon. He’ll start off as the DH. … Mariano Rivera is scheduled for an inning tomorrow and will probably follow Andy Pettitte to the mound.

OK, we’re off to Sarasota in the blog mobile. Check back later for updates.
