Game 2011.30: Yankees at Tigers
Seven in a row. Say it ain’t so…Jim. Unfortunately it is. So where do we go from here?
Well, at least one MLB.com reporter thinks the Tigers have the best chance of the Twins, Tigers and White Sox to compete in the central.
Sizemore won’t be the only new spot in the order moving forward, as JL said today that Boesch will now bat 3rd, VMart 5th (starting tomorrow) and Maggs 6th. The most depressing thing in that article was the note that Maggs has only hit two balls into the outfield in his last 26 at-bats. Yeah, two. One was a single. I’m wondering what Maggs has to do to lose his spot in the lineup. Does he have pics of Ol’ Smokey that we need to know about?
CC Sabathia goes for the Yanks tonight looking to win his third consecutive start. Though he has struggled recently in Comerica, going 0-3 with an 8.50 ERA in his last three starts there. Sabathia pitched pretty well on opening day against the boys, giving up 2 ER (3 total) in six innings in a no-decision.
I’m going to go ahead and predict that Bad Brad will be the player of the game tonight. But lookout for Cano who may be ready to play tonight. So I reserve my right to change my player of the game.
Wells in for Boesch today against the lefty, then hopefully it will be a long time before we see a lineup like this.
1. Austin Jackson, CF
2. Scott Sizemore, 2B
3. Magglio Ordonez, DH
4. Miguel Cabrera, 1B
5. Ryan Raburn, LF
6. Jhonny Peralta, SS
7. Casper Wells, RF
8. Alex Avila, C
9. Brandon Inge, 3B
