We arrived here early in the second week of February, when Chien-Ming Wang was the No. 3 starter, Xavier Nady was the starting right fielder, and Phil Hughes was the ace of Scranton. And here we are, eighth months later, with the Yankees less than a week away from Game 1 of the Division Series.
Joe Girardi will put this lineup out for CC Sabathia, as he goes for his 20th win tonight: Jeter, Hairston (LF), Teixeira, A-Rod, Swisher, Posada (C), Cano, Cabrera, Molina (DH, 5th career time - and who knows, he might just catch Burnett in a playoff game).
But other than trying to get CC his milestone victory, you'd expect the weekend games here to resemble something from March at Steinbrenner Field.
Oh, and here's something we found on YouTube to entertain you before watching CC tonight. It's Babe Ruth here in St. Pete, swinging a golf club. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4BGTuL-49Q
