I’m figuring I’ll be watching the game at the gym. I’m not that excited about watching my two least favorite teams play in a game I was hoping my favorite team would win.

Tonight’s lineups:

Today's Lineups

Anthony Rizzo - 1B Kyle Schwarber - DH
Aaron Judge - RF Enrique Hernandez - CF
Giancarlo Stanton - DH Rafael Devers - 3B
Joey Gallo - LF Xander Bogaerts - SS
Gleyber Torres - 2B Alex Verdugo - LF
Brett Gardner - CF Hunter Renfroe - RF
Gio Urshela - 3B Kevin Plawecki - C
Kyle Higashioka - C Bobby Dalbec - 1B
Andrew Velazquez - SS Christian Arroyo - 2B
Gerrit Cole - RHP Nathan Eovaldi - RHP

I didn’t watch all that many Yankees’ games this year. So how often did Rizzo lead off? Oh right, I can look that up. He hit in the leadoff spot five times this season.

Both teams are missing a star:

  • DJ LeMahieu is out with a sports hernia.
  • J.D. Martinez is out with an ankle injury.

One of the best parts about living in the west is that 8:00 starts are 6:00 starts. I don’t have to be up past midnight to watch the end of the game. I plan to watch some at the gym and then enjoy a beer watching the rest of the game.
