Let’s face it, apart from Tanaka, who’ll start tomorrow night in Queens, the Yanks starting pitching is outmatched for the rest of this subway serious. And even Tanaka’s gotta lose sometime. Wouldn’t it sum up a losing streak for the Yanks if Tanaka’s first loss in forever came against the Mets?
On the other hand, I’m excited to see what kind of fight the Yanks have in them. The team is being squeezed by injuries but still have not a terrible lineup.
It’s up to the bats to do the heavy-lifting for a minute.
Brett Gardner LF
Derek Jeter SS
Jacoby Ellsbury CF
Mark Teixeira DH
Brian McCann C
Alfonso Soriano RF
Yangervis Solarte 3B
Kelly Johnson 1B
Brian Roberts 2B
That’s a half Good, half-Ass lineup if I’ve ever seen one.
Ah, never mind the gloom and doom:
Let’s Go Yank-ees!
