Notes
Teixeira is back after missing three games with tendinitis in his left wrist. He had an MRI Monday in Tampa, which revealed no structural damage, and was prescribed stronger anti-inflammatory medicine.

Ramiro Pena gets his first career start to give Cody Ransom a blow. Ransom is batting .083 (2-for-24) in the Yankees’ first seven games.

Swisher lifetime as a clean-up hitter: 10-for-30 (.333) with a homer and nine RBIs in 11 games.

The line up looks good 4 todays game. I do wonder about Texs wrist is this going to be something to worry about? Lets hope not. Ching ming Wang needs 2 get it together, thiers no way that the team can deal with any more injuries. Anyways go Yanks 2nite laterrr.

Nice to see Hideki getting a day off, hes lost at the the plate, same with Ransom.

Wow Chien Ming Wang you just got me my final decision do any of you think the yanks could trade kei igawa and chien ming wang for roy halladay and minor league reliever
