I’m on the road again, but feel free to discuss the game here.
I believe I have offered the most realistic options above, based on what we have seen from Joe Girardi. Also, remember, this poll assumes that Johnson will be bumped, which is simply a hypothetical scenario. It is more than likely that we will see Johnson back in the 2-hole tomorrow (if his back is okay, [...]
Nick Johnson won’t face Joel Pineiro today, as he isn’t in the starting lineup. Via Marc Carig of the Star-Ledger, we learn that Johnson is experiencing some lower back stiffness, which was likely brought on from his extra batting practice yesterday, hence the day off (this appears to be a minor issue, however, so I [...]
For most of the season, Nick Johnson has hit second in the Yankees’ lineup. While the plate patience has certainly been there, Johnson has failed to do much else, as his line stands at .135/.375/.231. Meanwhile, Curtis Granderson, who has primarily hit in the seven-hole, is batting .268/.349/.482 on the season. Whereas Johnson has been [...]
Here are the lineups for the night YANKEES Derek Jeter SS Nick Johnson DH Mark Teixeira 1B Alex Rodriguez 3B Robinson Cano 2B Jorge Posada C Nick Swisher RF Marcus Thames LF Curtis Granderson CF PITCHING: RHP Javier Vazquez (15-10, 2.87 ERA, 2.77 FIP in 2009) RAYS Jason Bartlett SS Carl Crawford LF Ben Zobrist [...]
Beyond the Box Score’s Satchel Price has an interesting article out, in which Price compares number nine hitters across the American League (right off the bat, Price admits that the piece is somewhat cursory, in that number nine hitters are subject to change give certain situations, as we saw last night with Curtis Granderson). Each [...]

Recently, I penned a piece on Boston’s right fielder, J.D. Drew, extolling his virtues as a ballplayer while outlining his under-the-radar ways. I noted that Drew, throughout his three-year tenure in the Boson organization, has provided exceptional production for the Fenway faithful and, often, for a number of reasons, fans from both the Yankees and [...]
Here’s the 25-man roster for the Yankees: Pitchers (12): C.C. Sabathia, A.J. Burnett, Andy Pettitte, Javier Vazquez, Phil Hughes, Mariano Rivera, Joba Chamberlain, Alfredo Aceves, Sergio Mitre, Damaso Marte, Chan Ho Park, Dave Robertson. (Among relievers, Marte is the only left-hander.) Catchers (2): Jorge Posada, Francisco Cervelli. Infielders (6): Mark Teixeira, Robinson Cano, Derek Jeter, [...]
For Yankee fans, the club’s history is something that we should often revisit, for it is important to appreciate and take note of those who “came before.” Recently, thanks to the kind folks over at Steiner Sports, I was given an opportunity to relive some of that history by interviewing three former Yankees about their [...]

From the charts above, one can see that the Yankees’ top three starters in 2009 – CC Sabathia, A.J. Burnett, Andy Pettitte – when paired with Jorge Posada, often struck out fewer batters and, in fact, walked more batters when compared to their career averages, and to the work done with backup catcher, Jose Molina.
