Joe Girardi just met the media. Melky Cabrera has what Girardi called a mild strain of his left hamstring and is “very limited.” A move is expected to replace Cabrera on the World Series roster since Major League Baseball allows injury substitutions. – Jon Lane

I hope the Yankee defeat FAILADELPHIA tonight.

If Cliff Lee stops the Yankees from hitting for 2 or 3 innings I would suggest the Yankees consider a bunting attack. Pass this on to whoever can get it to Joe Girardi. Why a bunting attack? Because with Cliff Lee pitching deceptive changeups if the batter holds the bat out front, the ball will come to the bat and the batter won’t have to worry about the ball coming too fast or too slow, as the ball will come to the bat. Yes the batter will have to locate it up or down left or right a bit but he won’t have to worry about swinging too early or late as the bat will meet the ball. This bunting attack will also put pressure on Cliff Lee and the rest of the team. I have rooted for the Yankees for 52 years.
