In LA, Hu’s on first. In KC, the Yanks must decide who will be at short, with Derek Jeter, Our Fearless Hero, temporarily sidelined with a strained quad. He’s listed as day-to-day (we hope; another 200 hit season hangs in the balance!). These muscle pulls can linger, and with deleterious effects. We’ll hope for the best. Our expectation is that Wilson Betemit again spells the Captain in the hole, as he did yesterday. On the hill for the Yanks is Phil Hughes, who was excellent in his first showing. Posada will catch. Hughes goes against another fine young righty, Brian Bannister. Hopefully the Yanks will break out the bats. The team still has a negative run differential on the year, and have been outscored by the offensive juggernaut that is the Pittsburgh Pirates. Yipes. Comment away….
