Royals at Yankees
The Yankees take on the Royals at 7:05 on YES. The Yankees have clinched everything they could in the regular season. The goal now is to stay healthy and finalize their playoff rosters. They will see how Robertson does this week and if Bruney can continue to be effective as well as see if Gaudin will be a long man or they will go with 2 lefties etc. The games don't mean anything as they could lose them all and still have the best record in baseball. Hereare the pregame notes and lineup via Peter Abraham.
RHP Dave Robertson has been cleared to pitch and you can expect to see him tomorrow at some point. He has been out since Sept. 5 with a sore elbow. He has 61 strikeouts in 41 innings and could play a big role in the postseason.
Andy Pettitte banked an additional $750,000 when he went over the 190-inning mark. He needs 8.2 innings to get to 200 and another $750,000, which won’t be happening.
The Yankees are 44 games over .500. They have not been 45 games over since finishing 2002 with a 103-58 record.Yankees Lineup:Gardner(CF)Cabrera(RF)Damon(LF)Posada(DH)Cano(2B)Hinske(3B)Miranda(1B)Cervelli(C)Pena(SS)
