Game 28: Happy Anniversary Robinson Cano

It was eight years ago today that Robinson Cano was called up to take over second base from the woeful Tony Womack. I remember that day like it was yesterday. Kevin Brown was shellacked by the then Devil Rays, giving up eight runs in five innings – six in the first alone. The winning pitcher for the Devil Rays was Doug Waechter. Remember him?

The Yankees are welcoming the Oakland A’s for a three game set before heading out on a road trip to Denver and Kansas City. Hopefully those places won’t be expecting any snow.

Anyway, here are tonight’s lineups:

YANKEES
Gardner CF
Cano 2B
Wells LF
Hafner DH
Ichiro RF
Nunez SS
Overbay 1B
Nix 3B
Stewart C

Sabathia P

ATHLETICS
