Today’s double header kicks off with an afternoon matinee as the Yankees search for their 43rd win on the season. Although they have beeen very efficient when it comes to trouncing interleague oponents over the years, today may prove different as the Bombers will be heavily reliant on their “B Squad.” Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira, and Russell Martin will all be out of the lineup meaning Girardi will have the best bench in the history of the universe the bottom half of the batting order will be comprised of Nunez, Pena, Cervelli, and Garcia. Here’s your open thread for the afternoon.
*NOTE* Be sure to check out TYA’s Ottoneu Pick Six fantasy league over at Fangraphs. The way it works is simple. Click the link; sign up for a free account with Fangraphs; start playing immediately. Choose the group named “What they say about baseball” and pick your six players (a catcher, corner infielder, middle infielder, one outfielder, one pitcher, and one reliever) using the $120 (fake money) stipend. Daily points earned decide who the winner is. Also, many of you may already have joined RAB’s Ottoneu Pick Six league already — feel free to join ours as well (hey it’s free and involves no extra participation on your part) for twice the bragging rights. It’s quick, easy, addicting, and is a whole lot of fun.
