Today was fun, huh? I think we all learned a lot. We learned that Brett Gardner might be the sneaky most hated player on the Yankees.
We learned that Martin Prado will miss the rest of the season after having emergency appendectomy.
And before tonight's game, we learned from Joe that Masahiro Tanaka will make his return to the Major League mound this Sunday. Guess they want to see if this rest and rehab plan worked.
It was only 5 days ago that Michael Pineda had his worst start of the season against these Rays, getting hit up for 10 hits and 4 ER in 7+ innings. He'll look to rebound from that with a better outing tonight and he'll be hoping and praying with every fiber of his being that this starting lineup scores multiple runs for him.
1) Ellsbury- CF 2) Jeter- SS 3) Gardner- LF 4) McCann- 1B 5) Headley- 3B 6) Young- DH 7) Ichiro- RF 8) Cervelli- C 9) Ryan- 2B
I wouldn't count on it. I'm setting the over/under betting line at 1.5. Whatcha got? Here's your game thread for tonight. Go nuts.
