I’ve got a feeling they’re going to sweep this. I don’t know why and my feelings about such things usually aren’t very good. It just feels like a situation just bad enough that they’ll do something ridiculous and shocking and vault back into it at the moment when no one expects it. Except now I expect it, so I’ve ruined all that.
Updated Mariners lineup vs. Yankees with Segura back at SS after initially being out with illness. pic.twitter.com/oh75OxtaI9— Greg Johns (@GregJohnsMLB) September 7, 2018
Jean Segura initially didn’t appear here thanks to a fever, but then was reinserted and Dee Gordon moved to Center Field. The Yankees run out what is frankly a pretty weak version of their lineup that is still quite adequate top to bottom. James Paxton takes the bump for Seattle to face Masahiro Tanaka. Here’s hoping we thump him.
