I throw in with Robbie-Boy: at 8 1/2 ahead of the Red Sox with three weeks to go, the next mountain is fending off the Angels for home-field.
Word is that Girardi and Eiland will go with Mitre or Gaudin, but not both. Hmm. Another look at October. Start with the for-surers.
Six pitchers (CC, AJ, Pettitte, Joba, Hughes, Mo), and the only difference here is Lefty starting game three ahead of Joba.
Two catchers, Posada and Molina.
Five infielders: A-Rod, Jeter, Cano, Tex, Hairston.
Five outfielder/DHs: Damon, Melky, Swisher, Hinske, Matsui.
We're at 18. Add Aceves. And Bruney.
The way Marte is pitching, probably him. Robertson. Mitre or Gaudin, but not apparently both.
Leaving . . . Cervelli and Coke?
