Lineups New York Yankees
With the way the Florida Marlins are rolling over for the rest of the AL East, this game is hugely important. As well as the Yankees have played of late, they really haven’t build up any cushion for their eventual return to reality and until this ridiculous interleague play garbage is over they won’t be able to. The nonsensical idea that pitchers should hit has the potential to look especially bad today with newly-turned 40 year old Andy Pettitte going for the Yankees. 40 year old men shouldn’t be trying to bunt 95 mph fastballs or running the bases.
An interesting fact that I’m certain will not be mentioned on today’s game. Pettitte is more than twice as old as Bryce Harper. If any announcer mentions this, you’ll know they read it here.
