Here's the Yankees lineup: Jeter, Damon, Teixeira, A-Rod, Matsui, Posada, Cano. Swisher, Cabrera. No surprises there.
At least out here in SoCal, compared with the frosty Bronx, "The bones won't be aching as much and the body will be able to move around a little quicker,'' Johnny Damon said.
But as far as playing the Angels, "We have to put the pressure on them,'' Damon said. "They're a team that has always forced the issue.''
The Yanks have a chance to go up 3-0 today, but they've been there before - and not finished the job. Damon contributed to that collapse with the '04 Red Sox.
"We had a no fear type of attitude,'' Damon said. "Momentum can definitely change very quickly (and) you're never satisfied with a series unless you win it.
"We'd like to make it 3-0, and hopefully 4-0,'' Damon said. "We're not satisfied until we're popping champagne.''
