Yankees vs. Red Sox

Here are the lineups for tonights game between the two blood rivals. 

Yankees Lineup:Derek Jeter, Curtis Granderson, Mark Teixeira, Alex Rodriguez(DH), Robinson Cano, Nick Swisher, Brett Gardner, Eduardo Nunez(3B), Francisco Cervelli(C). 

Boston Lineup:Jacoby Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia, Adrian Gonzalez, Kevin Youkilis, David Ortiz, Crawford, Scutaro, Drew, Varitek. 

The pitching matchup is A.J. Burnett vs. Tim Wakefield.  It should be an interesting night as it usually is between these two teams.  There are just more stories attached to this one though with what happened last night and now Varitek behind the plate with the knuckler which he has never been good at handling. 

I would look early for Burnett to set the tone inside and brush some of these guys off the plate and for the Yankees to be off an running everytime they get on base.  They won't run Cervelli or Teixeira and probably not Cano although I think he can even steal off of that combo, but most of the guys will be running.  Jeter, Rodriguez, Granderson, Nunez, Gardner, maybe even Swisher will be running.
