The Yanks have been outscored 25 to 5 over the last three games. The goal this afternoon? Lose by less than five runs. They’re without Mark Teixeira the rest of the way (otherwise known as today), so there’s a good chance we’ll be treated to a few Swisher adventures at first base. Cano moves up to the three spot (7 for 15 in the series), but guess who’s batting fifth? Marcus Thames! He’s followed by fat Lance, who almost hit a home run last night. That’s right, we’re at the point where almost hitting a homer is significant, as is breaking a camera lens. Expect continued brutality from the bats of Nelson Cruz and Josh Hamilton and for Joe Girardi to do something that everyone hates. Enjoy my pain and enjoy the game. [Pic = MockSession]
