Toeing the slab for the Tribe will be 23 year-old Fausto Carmona. Fausto is coming off a start in which he only lasted four and a third innings, allowing 6 earned runs to the ChiSox.
The dreaded day-game-after-a-night game probably means Posada, and his .347 average are on the bench. Personally, I’d like to see Posada get the start at DH and let Giambo play the game at first.
In a nutshell: The Yanks offense is just punishing opposing starters. They haven’t seen Fausto yet in his young career, but it won’t make a difference if he can’t locate his pitches and work ahead in the count.
Keys to the game: Like I said, Posada and maybe another creaky vet. like Damon will get the day off, and there’s always the threat of a hangover with a short turnaround like this. Rasner needs to keep the string of good starts going for the Yanks. Looking forward to seeing Bruney pitch, a highlight of the young season.
