Major changes in the Yankee lineup tonight. See for yourself. Abreu and Giambi are just getting the night off against the southpaw according to Girardi.

I'm not going to go through all the woeful offensive stats here because you already know they suck. Let's hope they break out of their funk starting tonight so we don't have to keep focusing on a non-issue for this ball club.

Andy Pettitte is a lifetime 11-3, 3.04 ERA in 17 starts against the Royals, including 1-0, 2.84 ERA in one start in 2007.

John Bale is a lifetime 0-1, 4.66 ERA in 4 appearances (no starts) against the Yanks.

For those of you interested, Alan Horne will make his second start for Scranton tonight against Louisville (Reds). Shelley Duncan is also in the starting lineup.
