Today's Lineup & Some Thoughts on Last Night

Here's today's lineup:

Derek Jeter SS
Nick Swisher RF
Mark Teixeira 1B
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Robinson Cano 2B
Jorge Posada C
Lance Berkman DH
Curtis Granderson CF
Brett Gardner LF

As for yesterday, the Yanks suffered their third straight loss and fell to a game behind the Rays in the division. This was what I feared when I said I wasn't too comfortable with how this team looked after the Pettitte injury. Dustin Moseley did give them length last night, but that was about all he gave them. Just a bad night all around for the Yankees.

With guys like Moseley and Sergio Mitre getting starts. That, along with the struggles of A.J. Burnett and Phil Hughes, will not be enough to keep up with the Rays, so the Yanks need to turn things around very quickly.

In other bad news; Boston also won, they're getting healthy, and they're just 5.5 behind the Yanks.
