After last night's insanity, the Yankees and Tigers will face off in the last game of this four-game series. If you were hoping for normal weather this time around, you're going to be disappointed because it's still snowing in Detroit. If we can't get better weather, then perhaps we can get better baseball as Masahiro Tanaka will face Anibal Sanchez today. Tanaka is coming off a strong start last time out, while Sanchez has been beat up in his last two starts. Let's have another one-sided baseball game, please.

First pitch is schedule for 1:08 PM, with the game being broadcast on YES and MLBN.

After last night, Mark Teixeira and get the day off Alex Rodriguez. Stephen Drew is back in at second base, Garrett Jones will fin in at first, and Chris Young is in right with Beltran filling in at DH.
