Game 41 Lineup: Mariners vs . Yankees

Brett Gardner CF
Jayson Nix SS
Robinson Cano 2B
Vernon Wells LF
Lyle Overbay 1B
Curtis Granderson DH
David Adams 3B
Ichiro Suzuki RF
Chris Stewart C

LHP Andy Pettitte

- Ex-Yankee Hector Noesi will be on the mound for Seattle.  Aaron Harang was scratched.

- Andy Pettitte trys to right himself after a couple of rough starts

- Yankees called up Dellin Betances from Scranton and sent down Brett Marshall who was spent after throwing 108 pitches yesterday

- Jayson Nix gets his shot batting 2nd today.  Nix has had a very quiet season offensively but suprisingly, his .319 OBP% is 4th among healthy regulars behind Wells, Cano & Gardner.  Nix has hit 2nd 6 times this year and has hit .261/.293/.261 (6 for 23 with 5 Walks).  Not many Yankees have faced Noesi but Nix is 1 for 3 with a HR.


  1. Must say Adams is exactly what I thought he'd be. He's made a very strong first impression in his first 2 MLB games. He looks poised and aggressive and his talent is evident. He has a quick bat and hits the ball hard to all fields....I like him a lot. He reminds me a little of Toronto's young 3B Brett Lawrie (though not as intense) and Texas 2B Ian Kinsler. He looks like he belongs to me and I'm pulling for the kid.

    Doug/OldYank and everyone....what are your impressions of Adams?

  2. fishjam, I agree he reminds me of Michael Young or Kinsler. He might be just what the Yanks need at this time a younger player who can be a starter. That would be huge moving forward, the Yanks could concentrate on getting more pitching next year, add McCann, Zorbrist, Morse, if they become available.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
