Game 72 Open Thread: Phillies at Yankees

New, 227 comments

First the Cardinals, now the Yankees? Will this scourge never end?

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

It's so easy to hate on the Yankees. Extremely easy. Embarrassingly easy.

But the Yankees aren't what they once were. Nope. They are not. Their most recent glory days have passed, and they're left with AROD (who, granted, totally rules), Mark Teixeieieira, Brett Gardner, the overweight ghost of CC Sabathia, and some other dudes. I mean, I know the Phillies suck, but let's just leave the Yankees alone, alright?

Lineup time!

Today's Lineups

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES NEW YORK YANKEES
Ben Revere - CF Brett Gardner - CF
Cesar Hernandez - 2B Chase Headley - 3B
Maikel Franco - 3B Alex Rodriguez - DH
Ryan Howard - 1B Brian McCann - C
Domonic Brown - RF Carlos Beltran - RF
Chase Utley - DH Garrett Jones - 1B
Cameron Rupp - C Didi Gregorius - SS
Cody Asche - LF Chris Young - LF
Freddy Galvis - SS Stephen Drew - 2B
Kevin Correia - RHP Michael Pineda - RHP

The Phillies are rolling the dice on Kevin Correia again, because they literally have no other choice. That's the unofficial motto of the team, actually. The 2015 Phillies: No One Has Any Other Choice.
