Because one Yankees-Red Sox isn’t grueling enough, the two teams will play a pair of games today. We’re looking at eight total hours of eight-pitch at-bats, pitching changes, balls on the Monstah … the stuff that makes these games so drawn out and intense in the first place. So find a comfy chair and settle in, this won’t be a typical Saturday of baseball. Here’s the lineup…
RHP Freddy Garcia
This afternoon’s game starts at 12:30pm ET and can be seen on YES locally and MLB Network nationally. Enjoy.
Roster Notes: Cory Wade has officially been added as the 26th man for today. He must do back to Triple-A tomorrow per the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. The Yankees do not have any minor leaguers waiting at the team hotel for a potential between-game roster move, so it’s these 26 fellas and no one else.
