Game 40: Chase Whitley vs. Jacob deGrom (Who?)

Tonight’s the last game of the 2014 Subway Series and the last Subway Series game for Derek Jeter. Let’s pour one out for him, shall we?

Anyway, here are your lineups:

Gardner LF
Jeter SS
Ellsbury CF
Teixeira 1B
McCann C
Soriano RF
Solarte 3B
Roberts 2B
Whitley P

E. Young LF
Murphy 2B
Wright 3B
Granderson RF
C. Young CF
Duda 1B
Tejada SS
Centeno C
deGrom P

The pitching up matchup is Chase Whitley vs Jacob deGrom. How many guys do the Mets have with last names that start lowercase d’s? I think they lead MLB in that category.

Enjoy the game!
