Game 102: Yankees @ White Sox, 7/30/09

Below as per Pete Abraham, are tonight’s starting lineups.  Molina catches for Posada tonight.  Otherwise, the lineup is as it has been for a few games.  The White Sox have a power-heavy lineup, one of which the Yanks must be wary this series and one to which Yankee pitchers must not feed high pitches.  Anything up to the heart of the Sox order must have good movement on it, or expect it to get creamed.  The Sox mix some speed with lots of lumbering sluggers so, if Lefty and the other three starters can keep the ball down, they may well be able to turn some DPs against Chicago. Taking three of four would be a very good result this series, and the Yanks have won the opening game of each of the four series they’ve played after the break.

Enjoy the game, everyone.
