Some lineup changes tonight with A-Rod resting his bruised calf and Betemit playing 3B.  Giambi starts his first game since May while Damon sits after a good game at the plate last night.  

Coincidentally, Giambi's last start was the now infamous "Ha!" game and is a career .320 hitter (16-50, 3 HR, 7 RBI) against Halladay.

Wang has good success against the Blue Jays (3-1, 3.06 in 5 starts).  No surprise here, but Halladay has been a pain in the ass against the Yanks (9-4, 3.01 in 24 starts).
