More Yankees-Phillies pregame

The main pregame topic of discussion around the Yankees  involved Alex Rodriguez. Joe Girardi said the reason he’s the DH and not playing third is because he didn’t like what he saw from A-Rod’s lateral movement when he took grounders on Tuesday. The manager doesn’t have a timetable yet when Rodriguez will be back at third.

Carlos Ruiz isn’t catching for Philadelphia because he has a sore ankle. The Phillies have lost 15 of 21. Manuel said they’ll start winning again when they start hitting again.

“Ever since I’ve been here, we’ve had pitching problems,” Manuel said. “We’ve always been an offensive team.”  

Here’s the Phillies’ lineup:

1. Shane Victorino CF

2. Placido Polanco 3B

3. Chase Utley 2B

4. Ryan Howard 1B

5. Jayson Werth RF

6. Raul Ibanez LF

7. Greg Dobbs DH

8. Brian Schneider C

9. Wilson Valdez SS

Jamie Moyer P

UPDATE, 6:36 p.m.: Chad here. Just wanted to update to say the 2012 all-star game has been awarded to Kansas City. It will be KC’s first all-star game since 1973. I realize the Royals are no good, but Kansas City really is a great city.
