Game Thread: Yankees at Orioles

It’s another night game, so we’re doing another game thread. Feel free to comment as much as you’d like and be sure to be nice to one another.

Stacey doesn’t want to have to put anyone into time out. (Kidding.)

Here’s tonight’s Yankees lineup that will be facing Jair Jurrjens:
Brett Gardner CF
Eduardo Nunez SS
Lyle Overbay 1B
Brennan Boesch RF
Ben Francisco LF
Jayson Nix 2B
Thomas Neal DH
Ronnier Mustelier 3B
Bobby Wilson C

RHP David Phelps

Robinson Cano was a scratch. According to Sweeny Murti, he’s fighting a stomach bug.

Tonight’s game is being broadcast from Ed Smith Stadium, the Orioles’ spring home and it will be shown on MLB Network in New York. Check your cable provider for the channel number.

  1. Scary! I hate (HATE I tell you) seeing a pitcher get hit by a batted ball! That seems to happen a lot more often over the past few years.

  2. Well, that's it for me tonight. I'm slowly getting stretched out for the regular season. Should me ready to go longer Friday afternoon. Chat y'all later.

  3. Later Phil. Anyone think that Phelps 2 seam fastball looks a bit like Bartolos? Except Phelps doesnt have the velocity (he usually sits 92) and has actual off speed stuff. I like him as a back to mid of the rotation starter going forward. Hope the Yankees do too, and dont hurt his development by bouncing him around to the bullpen. Put a guy who isnt as important to the future there. I realize that guy probably wont be as good as Phelps was last year but I think Phelps is too important to the teams future. Hes more important as a successful starter than a swingman. Brett Marshall, Chien Ming Wang (he pitched out of the pen for the Nats) or Adam Warren should be ticketed as the "long man" if the team insists on having one

  4. Its a little different than our old stomping grounds but good to see phil and Prof here.

  5. Is it good or bad that the debate the next few days is going to be Boesch or Francisco for the 4th OF spot?

  6. Would Boesch have to clear waivers to be sent down to AAA? I think they both have options

  7. Hes more of a question mark than Francisco and Wells which I actually like. Mainly bc Boesch has upside at 27 and we know what Wells of the sub 300OBP and Francisco are all about. But it doesnt matter now, Boesch is probably going to be in the minors. Heck id put them both in the minors and have Melky Mesa be the 4th guy. If im going to have a 4th outfielder I want him to have the ability to play every OF position
