The Yankees caught a break last night not having to face Cliff Lee. No such Luck tonight as they are up against King Felix Fernandez. If the Yankees can hang in thier and work the count maybe they can get to the pen and if Vazquez continues to keep the game close they might pull out a win. If Javy falters early its all over.
Notable notes:
Derek Jeter is getting a day off and Pena will play short.
Swisher is getting a half day being the DH and Curtis will start in RF. These changes could spell trouble but the great thing about baseball is that you never know. Here is the Yankees starting line up.
Brett Gardner LF
Nick Swisher DH
Mark Teixeira 1B
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Robinson Cano 2B
Curtis Granderson CF
Colin Curtis RF
Francisco Cervelli C
Ramiro Pena SS

Swisher will be participating in the HR Derby which should be cool/ Other all star notes is that Paul Kanerko will replace Justin Mourneau at first. The Yankees final selections were Sabathia, Pettitte, Hughes, Swisher, Cano, Jeter, A-Rod and Mariano. I guess thats what happens when you are the defending world champions with the best record in the MLB.
