Game 100: Yankees @ Rays, 7/28/09

Below, as per Pete Abraham, are tonight’s stating lineups.  Lots of righty bats in the lineup against Sabathia, who looks for win #11 and to keep a strong string of starts going.  Three lefties will face the lefty Kazmir who, although struggling this year, has historically been good against the Yankees (5-4, 2.65 ERA).  Apparently he has been plagued by some forearm tightness of late.  The Yanks look to clinch a series win and make it 11 of 12 after the break.  I’ve got spaghetti and Italian sausage cooking.

[Edit: Abraham added the following: Alfredo Aceves is down again today. It was decided to give him three days off because he was “tired” according to Girardi. The manager claimed nothing was physically wrong with Aceves. But it’s certainly something that bears watching.

Should a problems arise with Aceves, this would hurt not just the pen now,  but the possibility of moving him to the rotation should the Yanks not acquire another pitcher for the back end of the rotation.  Hopefully a few days off will return him to his efficient self.]

Enjoy the game, everyone.
