Good morning all! Vincent Z. Mercogliano back manning the blog once again for today’s doubleheader against the Tampa Bay Rays. Some of you probably remember me from Labor Day weekend, when I covered a couple of games. For immediate updates all day, you can follow me on Twitter @vzmercogliano. I’ll usually post information there first, until I get back to my computer to blog it.

After a delay, the lineup has finally been posted. The big news is that Phil Hughes has been scratched from his start again after being pushed back yesterday. Hector Noesi will start in his place, and Girardi said he’s good for about 50-60 pitches. The bullpen should get some early work today.

Here’s the rest of the lineup:

Gardner CF
Jeter SS
Cano DH
Rodriguez 3B
Swisher RF
Posada 1B
Jones LF
Nunez 2B
Romine C
Noesi P
