Did you guys know it's cold in Detroit today? Well it is. It's suuuuuuper cold, so cold that there was ICE on the field this morning. I know, I can't believe it either. Hopefully the Yankees and Tigers are able to survive these conditions and complete this afternoon's game without getting severe frostbite and having to amputate their fingers and toes. CC Sabathia will make his first start of the 2016 season and here's the lineup that will take the field with him: 1) Jacoby Ellsbury- CF 2) Brett Gardner- LF 3) Alex Rodriguez- DH 4) Mark Teixeira- 1B 5) Brian McCann- C 6) Carlos Beltran- RF 7) Starlin Castro- 2B 8) Didi Gregorius- SS 9) Ronald Torreyes- 3B
First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 EST. Temperature at first pitch should be around -400 degrees, give or take. This is your game thread. Let's go Yankees!
