Yankees Set Roster/Ready for Opening Night

The New York Yankees finished off their exhibition schedule with a 9-6 win over the future starts this afternoon. I am not going to go in detail about the game. The starters all got a couple of at bats and then came out of the game. Javier Vazquez pitched 4 1/3 innings giving up 7 hits and 3 runs with a walk and a couple of strikeouts. He had a good spring and is ready for the season. The best part of the game was that the regulars got their work in and didn't get hurt. Speaking of injuries all the guys that were nicked up are ready to go for tomorrow night. Jorge Posada played and came through it fine. He will be the starting catcher tomorrow, Francisco Cervelli will be on the roster, he is getting better and had a talk with Joe Girardi and was told if he does get into a game to just be smart. Damaso Marte and Alfredo Aceves both felt better today and will be available out of the bullpen. Here is the Opening Day Roster Starting Pitchers CC Sabathia A.J. Burnett Andy Pettitte Javier Vazquez Phil Hughes Bullpen Mariano Rivera Joba Chamberlain Damaso Marte Dave Robertson Alfredo Aceves Sergio Mitre Chan Ho Park Starting Lineup Derek Jeter(SS) Nick Johnson(DH) Mark Teixeira(1B) Alex Rodriguez(3B) Robinson Cano(2B) Jorge Posada(C) Curtis Granderson(CF) Nick Swisher(RF) Brett Gardner(LF) Bench Marcus Thames Ramiro Pena Francisco Cervelli Randy Winn What do you guys think of your 2010 New York Yankees. They will try and defend the title and I think they have a great shot at doing it. The season is long but this team has a deep lineup and some really good pitching all the way around. It should be a fun season and it all begins tomorrow night in Boston.
