Game 46: Swish Gets Extended Rest

See you soon, Swish. (Stephen Dunn/Getty Images)

This is a game thread.  This is basically just an intro into the day’s game with the Yankees lineup and other pre-game notes.  Anyway, Joe Girardi has said that he is going to give Nick Swisher a few days off just so he can have some mental rest and try to get back on track from the left side of the plate.  I guess at this point they have to be willing to try to get him hitting because they can really use his bat.  Also, something else to note, Joba Chamberlain is unavailable for tonight because of recent workload.  Anyway, let’s take a look at the starting lineup:

Derek Jeter, SS

Curtis Granderson, CF

Mark Teixeira, 1B

Alex Rodriguez, 3B

Robinson Cano, 2B

Russell Martin, C

Jorge Posada, DH

Brett Gardner, LF

Chris Dickerson, RF

Bartolo Colon, SP

First pitch will be on YES at about 7:05 pm.  Let’s Go Yanks!
