Game 153: Helping the Twins Earn a Top-5 Draft Pick

David Aardsma is likely to be activated quite soon, per Chad Jennings. While he will likely be fairly limited, any pitches he can save from the arms of Robertson, Chamberlain, Soriano, and Logan would be a godsend – and, of course, set him on the path towards contributing from Opening Day next year.

Onto the lineups:

New York Yankees Minnesota Twins
Derek Jeter, SS Denard Span, CF
Ichiro Suzuki, RF Ben Revere, RF
Alex Rodriguez, DH Joe Mauer, 1B
Robinson Cano, 2B Josh Willingham, LF
Nick Swisher, 1B Justin Morneau, DH
Curtis Granderson, CF Ryan Doumit, C
Raul Ibanez, LF Trevor Plouffe, 3B
Russell Martin, C Jamey Carroll, 2B
Eric Chavez, 3B Pedro Florimon, SS
Andy Pettitte, SP Liam Hendriks, SP

The first pitch is scheduled for 8:10 p.m., on YES. Let’s go Yankees!

    Good enough 8th inning for the pen.

    • Phil C

      Yeah. But who pitches the 9th? I think some lefties are due, so maybe Thomas starts.

      • Professor Longnose

        Yankees are going to get that run back now, and then they should be able to struggle through without the regulars.

    Looks like Ibby and Chavey are getting hot at the right time.

    • Professor Longnose

      Plus Swisher. Yeah, they’re starting to look like the Yankees.

    Hope I’m not tripping on the cursed curtains, but just wanted to say ‘congratulations’ to some humorous old Yankee fans on a quiet victory.

      It feels weird not to be watching a nail-biter.

    • Phil C

      Not at all. Thanks you. “blushes”

    Only had half an eye out, but Joba done good, no?

    2 GAME LEAD!!!! With 9 to go.

  7. Professor Longnose

    Magic number to clinch a playoff spot is 4.

    • Phil C

      Ain’t worried about that. It’s the Division that matters!

    They showed the handshake chain, and focused a while on Granderson, nearing the end, and he said something to Rob Thomson. The outfield coach? Reference the ball that beat him to the wall?

    • Professor Longnose

      Don’t know. By now I’m listening on the radio.

  9. Phil C

    A’s & Rangers tied at 4 in bot 8th
