Mark Buehrle

A Different Lineup: With Curtis Granderson on the 15-day DL and A-Rod getting the day off, the Yankees have a very different lineup from their first game with Thames and Pena in there. But please don't ask me why Swisher is batting cleanup over Cano.
Granderson Update: Just saw this on ESPN as I'm typing this up...Granderson expected to miss a month with a left groin strain.
Let's Make This Quick: Yesterday's game was nearly 4 hours long, but Mark Buehrle is one of the quickest pitchers in the league, so this should be a faster game...unless the Yankees get him out of there early.
Follow Jim: Jim is making his first trip to Yankee Stadium today and I'm sure he'll be tweeting his experience. So follow him @jgeant or you could follow me @jphealy but I've got papers and finals to be studying for so I don't know how many tweets I can get in for today's game.
