Greetings, Brian Heyman here at Yankee Stadium today for the series finale.

From the pregame interviews, Mariano Rivera says he feels good and is ready to go again, but Joe Girardi said he would prefer not to use him today if possible. Then his closer would have tomorrow’s off day to rest as well before the Boston series commences at Fenway on Friday night. The manager also said he doesn’t want to use Joba Chamberlain today in the wake of him saving games the last two nights. So who will close if there’s something to close? Girardi talked about mixing and matching.

Girardi said Jorge Posada was feeling a little better, but more will be known about the state of his strained right calf on Friday “when we get him moving around.”

In a TV note, the July 10 and 11 games against Seattle are going to be the first-ever MLB 3D telecasts for those with DIRECTV HD who have 3D TV sets and reside in the YES home coverage area that includes New York State, Connecticut, north and central Jersey and northeast Pennsylvania.

 OK, the lineups:


1. Derek Jeter SS

2. Nick Johnson DH

3. Mark Teixeira 1B

4. Alex Rodriguez 3B

5. Robinson Cano 2B

6. Nick Swisher RF

7. Brett Gardner CF

8. Francisco Cervelli C

9. Randy Winn LF

Andy Pettitte P


1. Adam Jones CF

2. Ty Wigginton 2B

3. Nick Markakis RF

4. Miguel Tejada 3B

5. Garrett Atkins 1B

6. Matt Wieters DH

7. Nolan Reimold LF

8. Craig Tatum C

9. Julio Lugo SS

David Hernandez RHP

Update, 12:31: Adam Jones has been scratched with a right hip strain. So Lugo will hit first and Lou Montanez will be added to the lineup and hit ninth.
