The Yankees have a four game weekend series against the Royals in Kansas City this weekend with CC Sabathia starting tonight against Bruce Chen. So not only will the Yankees get to face a weak team in the Royals, but Zack Greinke pitched yesterday so they won’t have to face him this weekend.
Here are some notes:
- Jorge Posada is out of today’s lineup, no problems, just rest.
- Mark Teixeira and Curtis Granderson are back in.
- The Yankees are holding a memorial for George Steinbrenner at the stadium that is tentatively scheduled for September 20th.
- Day-of-the-game tickets will now be sold at the Times Squre Modell’s for up to half off their face value.
