Today's Lineups

Jason Kipnis - 2B Brett Gardner - LF
Mike Aviles - 3B Derek Jeter - SS
Michael Brantley - DH Jacoby Ellsbury - CF
Carlos Santana - 1B Carlos Beltran - DH
David Murphy - LF Brian McCann - C
Nick Swisher - RF Chase Headley - 1B
Chris Dickerson - CF Stephen Drew - 2B
Jose Ramirez - SS Martin Prado - 3B
Roberto Perez - C Ichiro Suzuki - RF
Trevor Bauer - RHP Esmil Rogers - RHP


Trevor Bauer is hoping he can deal a bit more "outage" than he did in his last start, and what better time to do it than against the hated Jackasses in their own overpriced home.

Meanwhile, "Call Me Esmil" Rogers faces his former team for the first time as a Jackass as part of the hilarious patchwork quilt that is the Yankees rotation. Sadly, he won't be facing the man who he was traded for in the fleecing of the decade as Yan Gomes gets a rest tonight.

Let's Go Tribe!
