Weather Update:

Empire State of Mind: That was the planned headline for the game when the Yankees clinched home-field advantage, but since it happened the same day they clinched, we went with Wake Me Up When September Ends.

Lineup Notes:Girardi is taking full advantage of having everything clinched by resting Jeter, A-Rod, Teixeira, Matsui, Swisher, and giving Posada a half-day off. Cano is obviously in there, because it must be written into his contract that he has to play every inning of every game as he rarely gets a day off and is almost never taken out when the game is out of hand.
