CC Sabathia faces off against soft tossing lefty Brett Cecil (4-7, 4.51 ERA). Tex is back in the lineup, and Curtis Granderson gets an infinitely deserved day off. For me, soft tossing lefty=big day for Montero. Not that velocity bothers him much, but its a good day for someone like him who has crushed lefties in the minors this year to do some damage. Of course, you better have some big days if you’re 21 years old and go around making comments like this:
“I’m just trying to do my best and have fun and help the team win,” Montero said. “It’s amazing to be with the Yankees right now. I feel like I’m in my house (Yankee Stadium) now. I’m more comfortable here.”
That’s enough hot dog right there to fill up an entire stadium. Very confident young man, now back it up, son. Here’s the fact of the day from MLB.com
The Yankees’ bullpen has combined to allow just four earned runs in the team’s last 11 wins — a 1.13 ERA (31 2/3 innings pitched), while striking out 44.
Sweet, but you already knew the Yanks have a great bullpen if you read this site daily. Here’s the lineup, courtesy of LoHud:
Brett Gardner CF
Derek Jeter SS
Mark Teixeira 1B
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Robinson Cano 2B
Nick Swisher RF
Andruw Jones LF
Russell Martin C
Jesus Montero DH
GO MONTERO AND GO YANKS!!!!
