Following the news of the tragic passing of Bob Sheppard, the Yankees take the field against the Mariners today in Seattle. One notable Sheppard fan is Derek Jeter, who will certainly be a player to watch for today. Should be interesting to see how the team responds and within the next few weeks how Mr. Sheppard is honored.
In the meantime, the Yankees have a game to win to close out the first half of the season. CC Sabathia has been outstanding lately and the Yankees could use a win following last nights rough loss against the Mariners, thanks to a Jose Lopez grand slam off Joba Chamberlain in the 8th.
One more note: Dustin Moseley has not been used since July 3rd, Chad Gaudin has not been used since June 30th, while Joba has been used five times.
