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!

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

  1. 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.

  2. 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?
