Welcome, Shelley: SatanFish-Yanks Gamer IX

With their last series at the Trop after the break, the Yankees improved to a 4-4 record against the worst team in the league, Tampa Bay Devil Rays.  The SatanFish are now in town for a four-game set including a day-night double-header on Saturday to make up for a rainout.  Recent call-up Shelley Duncan will make his debut at DH tonight while Damon plays center and Melky gets a deserved break.  It’s Moose on the mound against the incredibly hittable Edwin Jackson.  Brief intro tonight as gerbs is on the fly to go get the young-un.  Line-ups to follow; comment away.

    Again they are facing a poor record pitcher who is owning them early. Will be interesting to see if they can overcome this deficit.
