Swish scratched

Swish Dog was removed from the lineup just over an hour or so before first pitch due to a sore Achilles, and will be replaced by New CC in right. Here is the new lineup:

  1. Gardy LF
  2. Jeet SS
  3. Tex 1B
  4. A-Rod 3B
  5. Cano 2B
  6. Georgie DH
  7. Grandy CF
  8. Frankie C
  9. New CC RF

Kevin Brown AJ Burnett vs. Brian Bannister.

In other injury news, David DeJesus will miss the remainder of the year with a torn ligament in his right thumb. DeJesus, who injured the thumb crashing into the wall while trying to track down what turned out to be Jeter’s inside-the-park home run, will have surgery on Monday. I guess you can cross him off the list of players the Yanks could trade for.
