When the season is over the Yankees will send Eduardo Nunez to the Dominican League to play winter ball to make up for the at bats he missed due to his thumb injury. He will need to work on his offense and especially his defense, probably mostly at short stop.
With the AAA season over for the traveling band known as the
Melky Mesa OF
Corban Joseph 2B
Austin Romine C
Manny Banuelos - Injured
I would not have a problem calling any of the three up personally. The guy I would like to see called up is Ronnier Mustelier and even though he would require a roster move (see ya Derek Lowe) and would be ineligible for the playoffs if ANYONE deserves a call up right now it is Ronnier.
In the historic season of 1961 Roger Maris belted his 56th home run of the season to go along with Mickey Mantle's 52 becoming the highest total for two teammates ever in a season. The two guys that previously held the record, at 107 home runs combined, were a couple guys that go by the name of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig.
In 2008 Derek Jeter passes Babe Ruth on the Yankees all time hit list with his 2,519th hit of his career. Only Lou Gehrig's 2,721 hits are ahead of Jeter on the Yankees all time hit list.
The Yankees will finish their four game series this afternoon as they go into this game tied for first place with the Baltimore Orioles. Enough of the excuses and the ranting and such because tomorrow is over and not going to change. This is baseball and today is a new day so the Yankees just need to use this as motivation to bomb the hell out of the Orioles today. The Yankees will send Freddy Garcia to the mound, for some reason, to face off against Zach Britton for the Orioles. Ivan Nova is active and will be available out of the bullpen so it might be a good idea to just go ahead and get him up after the 4th inning is over. The game will be televised at 1:30 pm ET on YES and TBS.
1. Derek Jeter - DH
2. Nick Swisher - RF

4. Robinson Cano - 2B
5. Russell Martin - C
6. Steve Pearce - 1B
7. Andruw Jones - LF

guys like sherman, marchand, klapisch sit behind their keyboards and throw nasty words around because they know there's no repercussions— Cranky Yankees Cat (@leokitty) September 9, 2012
Still whining about Maier misses the point that MLB now has a system to get those calls right. What happened tonight is just embarrassing.— Benjamin Kabak (@bkabak) September 9, 2012
@marccarig I think there might be a job opening at the NY Post.— Mike Eder (@mbonzo31) September 9, 2012
Storm to which randy levine refers is an actual storm, not the yankees current storm.— Jon Heyman (@JonHeymanCBS) September 9, 2012
No quotes from Jerry Meals? Good thing they asked Joe the same question 8 times and made themselves the story though— Bloggie McBlogger (@yagottagotomo) September 9, 2012

That quote pisses me off all over again. Zero accountability. Just head-in-the-sand BS. We all saw very conclusive plays.— Benjamin Kabak (@bkabak) September 9, 2012
