Andy Phillips,  1B

Johnny Damon is back in CF while Shelley Duncan makes his debut as the DH and is hitting ninth.  Melky is out of the lineup due to the abdominal strain he sustained in yesterday's game.

Tonight's pitching matchup is a rematch of Sunday's game in Tampa.  It is absolutely imperative that Moose takes one for the team tonight and eats some innings with an already tired bullpen and DeSalvo and Igawa scheduled to take the hill in the double-dip tomorrow.

Moose's career numbers vs. D-Rays:  16-6, 3.30 in 28 games.  Jackson's career numbers vs. Yanks:  0-0, 5.56 in 5 games.
