Game 157: Down But Not OutBy
There’s nuttin’ but six Game 7′s left for the Yanks this year; if they win out while the Sox lose out, we’re looking at a one game playoff to decide to Wildcard team. It sounds impossible, but it’s not. Just improbable.
The ghosts seems to be back for last joyride, maybe they’ll bring us a little September magic.
1. Damon, LF Gardner, CF
2. Jeter, SS Damon, LF

6. Nady, DH
7. Cano, 2B

And looking for his third career 19-win season, and first since 1996, Mikey Mussina.
Oh, and I forgot to mention that the Yanks have one more thing on their side tonight. I’ll be stuck at work mad late, and I forgot to set my DVR. That means only one thing: Moose will finally add that perfect game to his already sterling resume.
Update (6:38pm): Lineup change, the Cap’n’s hand is bothering him, presumably from the HBP the other night. Explains Sunday’s 0-for-5er too.
