Game 147: Jays @ Yankees, 9/16/09

Below, as per Pete Abraham, is the Yanks’ starting lineup.  I have much running around to do, so it is unlikely, should it appear, that I will post the Jays’ lineup before the game.  Hairston is in left for JD against the lefty Tallet.  Posada’s absence means Molina is in to catch Gaudin.  As of now, still no word about Posada’s impending suspension, which I expect to be six games.  The Yanks look to return to 41 games above .500, and to finish the home stand 7-3.  Enjoy the game, everyone.

  1. 4 gms for Jorge, 3 for Shelley.

  2. Make it three. Pete Abe updated it later…

  3. Three for each, that is.

  4. Thanks, Mike. It could certainly have been worse. Take the penalty and move on.

  5. Nice walkoff tonight. We will miss Godzilla. How very clutch he always is. Clutch again tonight with the 2-run game-tying HR. Hughes and Mo again. Mo down to 1.66 with the ERA. He never ceases to amaze. Then the speed of the Road Runner (or Brett the Jet as you call him.

    For those who knocked him, that is TWO GAMES THIS WEEK that Gardner’s speed has won. Let’s hope he wins a few in October with that speed. The double steal w/A-Rod and forced error the other night. The SB then moving to third on DJ’s grounder tonight. For too long, a missing ingredient in the Yanks’ attack.

  6. No doubt, Mike. Gardner’s taking second was practically a given after the single. What a weapon. On Matsui, it is likely the case that he won’t return with his defensive limitations and their likely desire to spread around DH work. But the Yanks better find a way to replace Matsui’s productivity, which has been very impressive his whole career and this year. 25/85, .280 is damn good, and hard to turn away. I’d love to see him back, but don’t see how it can work since they’ll likely re-sign JD, whose defense is impressing me less and less.
