Anybody still up?

Joe Girardi said after the game that it was 50-50 whether Alex Rodriguez starts tonight.

Like it matters. The Yankees have Jerry Hairston Jr. He is hitting .389 in 12 games as a Yankee and has driven in five runs in 18 at-bats.

CC Sabathia has allowed one earned run and struck out 19 over 15.2 innings in his last two starts, dropping his ERA to 3.64. Sabathia 5-1 with a 2.98 ERA in his last six starts. “I feel like this is my time of the year,” he said.

The Yankees are 72-43 (.626). That’s a 101-win pace.

Finally, there was a good line from Hideki Matsui. After going 4 for 5 with two homers and five RBI, he was asked how he enjoyed hitting cleanup again.

“I don’t hate it,” he said.
