Game 44: But can they hit?By
So last night didn’t go according to plan, but at least the Yankees (Freddy Garcia, specifically) pitched well. In fact, New York pitchers have held the opponents to two runs or less over the last four games, and over the last eight games they’ve keep the other team to an average of 3.5 runs per game. That’s plenty good enough to win, the offense just has to do their part. Let’s hope a right-heavy lineup against the southpaw Chris Capuano does the trick…

Hate these Saturday night games, especially since this one is on FOX. Sigh. Try to enjoy.
Roster Move: Lance Pendleton has been recalled from Triple-A Scranton and Amaury Sanit was sent back down. Is carrying two long relievers really necessary? Another one inning, strikeout guy for the sixth and seventh innings would be cool.
Reminder: Ben’s going to be at the Delta Dugout tomorrow, click the link for all the details.
