The 100th game of the season is always a little depressing, only because seeing that third digit drives home the point that the season is much closer to the end than the start. The Yankees have a nice big nine-game lead in the AL East, their largest division lead at the 100-game mark since the 1998 team was 15 games up. That team was quite good. Here’s the lineup…
LHP CC Sabathia
Today’s game starts a little after 4pm ET and can be seen on FOX, but the weather in the city is pretty crummy and we may be in for a delay. Enjoy, whenever they play.
Nick Swisher Update: Swisher (hip) is fine but Joe Girardi is giving him the obligatory “one extra day” to guard against a setback, though he may use him to pinch-hit. Might as well play it safe given the standings.
Update: Yep, we’re in a rain delay. No word on a start time yet, but based on what’s happening outside my window, don’t expect baseball anytime soon.
Update Part Two: They’re saying the game will begin at 6:05pm ET, so hooray for that.
