I’m excited for the game tonight, and I want to send out a quick reminder that since it is in Texas, the game starts at 8:05pm.  Its amazing how you can have a bad day at work, get home, do some quick blogging about the Yankees and suddenly its not so bad anymore.

Anyways, tonight’s lineup:

YANKEES (26-20)
Derek Jeter SS
Johnny Damon LF
Mark Teixeira 1B
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Robinson Cano 2B
Hideki Matsui DH
Nick Swisher RF
Brett Gardner CF
Kevin Cash C

Pitching: RHP A.J. Burnett (2-2, 5.28 ERA)

Comments:

Yankees go into the game with a franchise record 13 game errorless streak.

Captain Jeets leads the AL in All-Star Voting (see post below) and is in the midst of a 10-game hitting streak.

Mark Teixeira has hit safely in nine straight.

Robinson Cano has not struck out in 15 games.

AJ Burnett is riding a seven-game winless streak in his last seven starts.  Ouch.  Last year, Burnett pitched twice at Ranger Park and was 1-0 with a 6.35 ERA.  Hope he can turn it around…
