Pregame Notes 10 April 2008

The Yankees need a win tonight, but more than that, they need an offensive showing.

Fortunately, for those that think a little line-up shuffle will get the job done, that is exactly what's in store for tonight.

The Yanks are sitting Bobby Abreu, so A-Rod is hitting third in his place and Posada is batting clean-up. Since Jeter is still sitting, Melky Cabrera (as opposed to Canò) will get his chance in the two-spot and Gonzalez playing in short. Morgan Ensberg gets the start at first and Molina will be catching.

So, if the Yankees are looking for speed on the basepath, tonight's not especially the night.

Andy Pettitte will be on the mound, which should hopefully give the bullpen a little bit of rest, as he looks to bounce back from his so-so first start.

This time tomorrow I will be on my way to Boston (I have tickets for Saturday), so Brent Nycz from The Bronx Block has kindly agreed to do tomorrow's postgame recap.

Check back for more after the game.
