Game 84: Stopper

Mariano Rivera said he felt fine after throwing today, but he is still unavailable tonight. In other injury news, Rafael Soriano will throw a bullpen tomorrow and Eric Chavez had yet another setback in his rehab, this time his abdominal acted up and he is heading back to New York today for tests.  Lastly, Eduardo Nunez is feeling fine and is available off the bench after that hammy kept him out Sunday and Monday.  Also, Joel Sherman (two links) tells us why Derek Jeter might look better at the plate tonight.  Hopefully, CC can play the role of stopper and stop the losing streak tonight at two.  Here’s the lineup:

  1. Derek Jeter, SS
  2. Curtis Granderson, CF
  3. Mark Teixeira, DH
  4. Alex Rodriguez, 3B
  5. Robinson Cano, 2B
  6. Nick Swisher, RF
  7. Jorge Posada, 1B
  8. Brett Gardner, LF
  9. Francisco Cervelli, C

And I said above, it will be CC Sabathia on the bump.  This one will start a little after seven and can be seen on YES.  Let’s Go Yanks!!
