For whatever reason, the Yankees have not posted a lineup for tonight’s game. It’s usually posted six hours before a night game in spring training. Today, it’s still not up three and a half hours before first pitch.
Some are wondering — and this is 100 percent speculation — whether the Yankees might be waiting for Alex Rodriguez to get back from his meeting with federal investigators. They might have one lineup ready if he’s going to make it back, another ready if he’s not.
Again, this is strictly speculation. Brian Cashman said this afternoon that he wouldn’t not comment on where Rodriguez is or where he’ll be tonight.
UPDATE, 3:37 p.m.: Yep. Now comes word that Rodriguez is back in Tampa. Not sure that’s why the lineup is delayed, but it would make sense.
