Game 32, Mariners at Yankees
RHP Meche v LHP Randy Freaking Johnson. 4:05 our time, FSN.
The Mariners have been bad against lefties. Randy Johnson is left-handed. He’s also really, really good.
Also, Ichiro’s been in a bit of a funk lately.
So question of the day: since it looks like only injury will ever get Beltre/Boone/Ibanez/Ichiro/Winn out of the lineup, who do you think gets injured out of those five? It’s an interesting exposure v. fragility thing — I’d pick Ibanez if he was playing left all the time, but as a DH? I’m going to go with Boone. I think he’ll get caught napping at second and take ground ball off his leg and miss a couple games with a nasty thigh bruise.
