Man, last night was intense. A tight well pitched game is always amazing to watch and you know that whenever one of our AL East rivals come into town it always feels a bit more like a playoff game. Between the games that got heated last year with the scuffle between Carlson and Posada and this time around with Bautista and Nova, whats going to happen tonight? If Carlson gets into the game I can still see him harbouring bad feelings about last year, this is going to be an entertaining game regardless of what happens so tune in.
And who knows, maybe we will get an Home Plate Umpire that doesn't feel like he has to be the center of the show this time around.
One the mound we have Marc Rzepczynski taking on Dustin Moseley. Moseley is a converted reliever/spot/5th starter and has taken his fair share of lumps, but when you have the Yankees lineup batting you are going to make up for a few earned runs going the other way. Moseley has actually already started against the Jays back on August 3rd, He lasted 7.1 Innings giving up 5 Earned runs and taking the loss as the Jays cruised to an 8-2 victory.
|2010 - Marc Rzepczynski||1-1||6||4||0||0||0||0||22.2||25||12||12||2||7||19||4.76||1.41|
|2010 - Dustin Moseley||3-2||9||5||0||0||0||0||39.2||39||21||21||9||14||19||4.76||1.34|
For the Lineup we have a Snider sighting!!1! He is taking over for Lewis in LF and leads off. Buck is back behind the plate for Molina and bumps EE down to the 9th spot in the lineup. Everything else stays the same.
Finally I just wanted to note something. To any potential fans of other teams that feel the urge to stop by, please feel free, but follow the rules. Be polite, and please understand if you come into the game thread you are going to be people reacting to in game situations. If you come in and you argue with someone don't expect a warm welcome or level headed arguments during a game. Especially if you come in spouting off about Bautista.
