YANKEES
Damon CF
Jeter SS
Abreu RF
Rodriguez 3B
Giambi 1B
Cano 2B
Posada C
Matsui LF
Betemit DH
Kennedy RHP

Notes: Thanks to Kevin Devaney for texting this in. He also reports that Melky Cabrera had his hearing today and had his suspension reduced to two games. So he will sit today and tomorrow. … Neither Betemit or Duncan have faced Andy Sonnanstine, so Betemit gets the call because he switch hits. I believe Shelley’s hearing is Monday.

I’m off to see Shine A Light so play nice and enjoy the game if they actually play it.

UPDATE, 6:46 p.m.: Boy, you go to one movie and everything goes to hell.

Joe Girardi has the flu and is too sick to manage. He was sleeping in his office for a while. Rob Thomson and Co. will take over. Try some green tea, Joe.

Meanwhile, it turns out that Duncan and Cabrera dropped the appeal of their suspensions when they were dropped to two games. Melky will be out today and tomorrow, Shelley on Sunday and Monday. Is it me or is MLB’s justice system a bit nonsensical? It took them three weeks to figure that out?

Finally, Jorge Posada’s shoulder is too sore to catch but he can DH. The new lineup:

Damon CF
Jeter SS
Abreu RF
Rodriguez 3B
Giambi 1B
Cano 2B
Posada DH
Matsui LF
Molina C
