Game 154 vs the Rays - Yanks look to clinch a playoff spot

Game 154 vs the Rays - Yanks look to clinch a playoff spot 


Somebody had to take Game 1 with Noesi starting.

Here in the info and line-up from the lohud blog:

After a delay, the lineup has finally been posted. The big news is that Phil Hughes has been scratched from his start again after being pushed back yesterday. Hector Noesi will start in his place, and Girardi said he’s good for about 50-60 pitches. The bullpen should get some early work today.

 

Here’s the rest of the lineup:

 

Gardner CF
Jeter SS
Cano DH
Rodriguez 3B
Swisher RF
Posada 1B
Jones LF
Nunez 2B
Romine C
Noesi P

Montero DH tonight then hopefully??

Looking forward to seeing Noesi throwing to Romine, although it'll be a short outing most likely.

Nice day for a double dip, wish i was at the stadium.

I must be great for those fans that paid full price to get into the game, only to see Granderson and Tex get another day off.    But hey, they get to see Posada play first base and Jones play left field.

I think Yanks don't want to light up Rays of hope for Tampa by giving Phil Hughes the ball. Good move.

Getting started early against Sheild is also a good sign.

Gots to keep it going!

At this pace, Noesi will be done by the end of the 3rd, over 30 pitches already.

Does anyone think that if Noesi was put into the rotation at the All Star Break, he would have better numbers than A.J. Burnett?

Who knows how much they choose to stretch out Noesi here. They could just use him up all they possibly can and then just shut him down until 2012. Thats like 5 months rest...

The HR pitch didn't look particularly bad to me, seemed like he had it elevated pretty high...not high enough apparently.

Against the Rays offense CC really should be able to go long, but they will be playing hard with their playoff lives on the line one can imagine.

It hasn't bitten either team though, yet. Fortunately, it sucks to see bad calls amount to anything in these kind of games.

This is the first time this whole season I think I have heard commentators talk about sabermetric stats(take that with a grain of salt as I've maybe watched half of the games)

Cone is into sabermetrics more than most announcers.

Jeter needs to go 11 for 30 for the remainder of the season (prior to the start of this game) to finish at .300. He is already 2 for 2 today and at .299. I hope he can pull it off.

No walks for us.

Usually that translates into trouble for us.

So Girardi can mix and match in the 5th inning.

As long as that's the only scenario he comes in, I would be alright with itpirate
