Game 91: Tigers @ Yankees, 7/19/09

Below, as per Pete Abraham, are today’s lineups.  After the Old Timers Game, the Yanks look for the sweep. JD sits, and Brett the Jet, interestingly, bats second.  Jeter has been hot at the plate, so why move him.  This might not be a make-or-break start for Joba, but he must be good and go at least six.  The bullpen has not been overworked, and hopefully it will stay that way and Joba will not work inefficiently, as Burnett did Friday night and CC began yesterday.  The rotation must be a bit more solid in the second half for the Yanks’ run to the playoffs.  As yesterday between CC and Verlander, this is a good matchup of good younger pitchers, with Joba facing an improved Edwin Jackson.

Get the sweep, Yanks.  Enjoy the game, everyone.

  1. Joba was ace today finally great to watch him pitch so great. But are pen is looking great right now with Coke, Bruney (when hes back to his old self), Hughes, Ace and Mo.

    You seen the latest Potter movie yet Jason?

  2. Wasn’t he, Nick? Very impressive, finally getting a win at home by taking the ball deep into the game. Definitely agreed about the improved bullpen. I think it’s time to give Mariano a blow after saving three straight.

    I have indeed seen “The Half-Blood Prince,” and thought it was excellent, and funnier than I expected. I must say that I find Rupert Grint (Ron) to be a very funny, facially expressive actor. The scene when he wolfed down the box of enchanted candy and was hanging all over Harry and Slughorn was hilarious, as was Harry when he drank the luck potion. I think Radcliffe (Harry) can be a little stiff at times, but Emma Watson impresses me more and more. Plus, the all-around cast is always great. Alan Rickman is one of my very favorite actors, so genuinely nasty as Snape. I thought it was excellent, and I was so glad we saw it in the afternoon on opening day, especially after seeing the mob scene in the lobby as we exited. I can’t wait for the last two.

    I just finished reading “The Order of the Phoenix,” which I though terrific and different for Harry, who was at times downright mean in the book, really temperamental though affected by Voldemort. My son, daughter, and I are reading aloud “The Deathly Hallows.” Thus far, it’s tremendous.
