Record Low Attendance at Yankee Stadium; Modified Lineup

For the third straight game, the Yankees set an attendance low at the new stadium last night. Only a tad more than 40,000 fans turned out for the contest against the Minnesota Twins. Of course, that's still a lot more than Sunday's White Sox-Indians affair, which drew fewer than 9000 fans.

- The Yankees will face a lefty-starter (Brian Duensing) for the first time tonight, and hence will feature a modified lineup: Andruw Jones will start in left-field with either Gardner moving to CF or Grandy staying there while Derek Jeter will lead off. Update: Gardner will get the night off.

- Mark Teixeira was named the New York Player of the Week by SBN NY. Elsewhere, Tex named his top five baseball movies. Can you guess them?
