As if it wasn’t bad enough that the Yankees have already lost the first two games of the series in a fashion best described as “ugly,” today’s game will be broadcast on FOX! I can hear all the “Ozzie’s team plays the game the right way,” and the “the Yankees offense has been propped up by that little league ballpark,” and the “CC Sabathia has not been as good as expected” references now. It’s always Trash the Yankees Day whenever it’s a nationally televised game, and for whatever reason they always seem to lose.
Bah, mini-rant over. Anyway, here’s the strange lineup for this afternoon. Try to enjoy the game between FOX’s holier than thou rants.
Ransom, 1B – really? Hinske can play first, you know
And on the mound, Allen Burnett.
Note: If the Yankees lose, blame Joe. I believe the team’s record when I write the Game Thread this year is 0-157.
