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.
