Via multiple sources (both media and blogs), the Yankees have set their 25-man roster.

Here is the roster:


CC Sabathia
AJ Burnett
Andy Pettitte
Javier Vazquez
Phil Hughes

Mariano Rivera
Joba Chamberlain
Damaso Marte
David Robertson
Chan Ho Park
Alfredo Aceves
Sergio Mitre


Jorge Posada
Francisco Cervelli


Derek Jeter
Alex Rodriguez
Robinson Cano
Mark Teixeira
Nick Johnson
Ramiro Pena


Brett Gardner
Curtis Granderson
Nick Swisher
Marcus Thames
Randy Winn

Marcus Thames, Sergio Mitre, and Boone Logan were the three players on the bubble, not all three made the roster. Thames and Mitre will go to the Bronx, Logan will open up the season with Scranton.

The Yankees had questions about injuries to Jorge Posada, Francisco Cervelli, Alfredo Aceves, Nick Johnston and Damaso Marte. But they all made the roster.

Tonight the Yankees fly up to Beantown for game #1 of the 2010 regular season.

Let’s go YANK-EEEES!


After a consultation with famed doctor Marc Philippon, it was announced this week that Alex Rodriguez will not need a second surgery this offseason on his right hip.  Rodriguez missed the World Baseball Classic and the first 6 weeks of the regular MLB season because of torn cartilage.

At the time, the Yankees, Rodriguez and Philippon tried to avoid a more extensive, season-ending surgery by performing a less invasive surgery that would cause Rodriguez to only miss 6-8 weeks of the regular season and have a second follow-up procedure after the season ended.

However, a MRI indicated this week that the first surgery had done enough and that the hip had properly healed.  At the time, many questioned whether this was the right move for Rodriguez and the Yankees and it turned out it was.  The Yankees turned their season completely around after A-Rod joined the team in May, and he was the best hitter in the Yankee lineup this postseason, hitting .365 with 6 home runs and 18 RBI – tied for a major league post-season record.

Bombers utility man Jerry Hairiston, Jr was given a cortisone shot for tendinitis in his left wrist and is listed day-to-day with the injury.  Hairiston left Wesneday night’s game against the Angels in the middle of his at-bat, sending some fans into a state of worry.

Hairiston said after the game that the wrist has been sore since July when he was with Cincinnati.

Although not an everyday player, Hairiston has been exactly the type of bench player that a chaampionship team needs – a aguy who plays his heart out, runs fast and is ready when called upon.

I can see the Yankees letting him take it easy this week since a playoff spot is already guaranteed and they will want him rested up and comfortable.

When trying to find a ticket seller for baseball tickets, try They’re a leading seller of sports event tickets and have reasonable prices for some of the biggest games this year. They offer cheap Yankees tickets throughout the season and you can view the full schedule and seating charts.

The Yankees performed a cautionary x-ray on Sergio Mitre’s pitching arm and it came back negative.  Skipper Joe Girardi is unsure if Mitre will make his next start as scheduled.  If he is feeling well, Mitre will throw a bullpen session on Monday.

Quite a lot happened in the Yankee Universe this weekend.  From Derek Jeter further cementing his place in history, to Hideki Matsui getting his knee drained.  The Yankees took 3-4 from Seattle to start their 10 game road trip 3-1.  A face-off with Oakland looms, a team the Yankees have disposed of 5 times in 6 chances this season.

Boston lost 2 of 3 against Texas, ending the weekend 7.5 games behind the Yankees in the AL East and .5 games behind Texas for the wildcard.  They have the day off Monday before facing Toronto, a team they are only 5-4 against this season.

Captain Derek Jeter hit another career milestone Sunday, hitting his 2,674th hit as a shortstop, passing Luis Aparicio for career hits by a shortstop.  In true Jeter fashion, the hit was an RBI double that gave the Yankees a 3-2 lead against the Mariners.

It won’t be long before he makes history again – Jeter sits in second place all-time in Yankees hits, only 33 behind the Iron Horse, Lou Gehrig.  Including 13 hits as a DH, Jeter has 2,688.

Hideki Matsui had his knee drained on Saturday and was expected to miss Sunday’s game, but has been kept out of the lineup today.  No word on when he will return to the lineup; he’s listed as day-to-day.  Matsui has not played the field this season due to his knee issues, but the complications of years of knee issues have resulted in at least two knee-drains this season.  Hopefully, this should keep him fresh through the postseason.  Matsui is one of the most clutch hitters in the lineup.

Robinson Cano hit in all four games against Seattle to push his hitting-streak to 14 games.  During that time, he has increased his BA to .321.  Cano has been one of the most consistent hitters for the Yankees this season.

The Yankees are 11-3 in August, taking 4 of 5 from Toronto, sweeping 4 straight against Boston, and winning 3 of 4 in Seattle.  Oakland is the site of their next three games, the A’s being a team that the Yankees seemingly have had little trouble against this season.  After a relatively easy series in Oakland, the Yankees have a day off before traveling to Boston for a three-game series at Fenway.

Oh, and Jorge Posada celebrates his 38th birthday Monday.  He will be in the lineup.
