Game 128: White Sox @ Yankees, 8/28/09

Below, as per Pete Abraham, are tonight’s lineups.  Molina catches again for Jorge.  Otherwise, the lineup is as it has been.  Hughes and Mariano are certainly rested, not having pitched since Sunday.  The Yanks could use a better effort from the offense than yesterday afternoon, when they were handed opportunity after opportunity, yet hit a mere 2-12 with RISP.  Something more akin to their effort against Buehrle August 2 would be most welcome.  I take a certain comfort in C.C. starting.  The guy eats innings, gives a solid or better start always with maximum effort.  Taking the ball deep, then handing it to Hughes and Mariano, would be just fine.  The weather is iffy today, with rain in the New York area and more coming up from southeastern Pennsylvania.  I sense a rain delay before the game, maybe a long one.  Regardless, enjoy the game, everyone.

  1. FINALLY Cano with RISP big hit last night we needed it.

    Just read the Angels got Kazmir got to say that’s a blow they a great pitcher whens hes on form. Then they got him of peanuts. He will be one of the best 4th or 5th starters in baseball.

  2. Agreed, Nick. Huge win last night, and it seemed to take a little starch out of Chicago–as did Mitre of all people.

    If Kazmir can stay healthy, he’ll add a lot to their rotation. When he’s on, Kazmir is better than Saunders. I have little doubt that the Angels wanted him not just because he’s good, but is often tough on the Yanks.
