Game 32: Yankees (18-13) @ Rockies (19-13)

DENVER -- Look closely at the lineup Joe Girardi is sending out tonight against the Rockies and their right-handed starter, Juan Nicasio:

Brett Gardner CF

Robinson Cano 2B

Vernon Wells LF

Lyle Overbay 1B

Ichiro Suzuki RF

Jayson Nix SS

Chris Nelson 3B

David Phelps RHP

Austin Romine C

Yes, you read that correctly. Girardi is going all Tony La Russa on us. I'll spell out all his reasons in the blog shortly but it has to do with not stacking his lefties for late-in-the-game pitching changes, as well as getting an extra hitter in the lineup (Romine) in front of Cano.
