Game 118: Yankees @ Mariners, 8/16/09

Below, as per Pete Abraham, are today’s lineups.  Teixeira gets a rest from his Gold Glove duties at first by DHing, with Swish taking first. Cano has a day off, with Pena playing second, and Melky gets the day off he’s needed, with Hairston playing center.  Mariano may not be available, either.  All that, to me, is perfectly fine.  The Yanks are resting guys who have needed rest.  The team has played great baseball and has a commanding lead in the East, and a decent lead for home field advantage.  A good start from Joba, combined with production from a still-solid lineup, should be sufficient.  Get the sweep, guys.  If the weather holds out, I’ll be out for most of the game at a picnic.  Enjoy the game, everyone.
