As you probably already know, Mark Teixeira was scratched today because of a sore left wrist, which he claims he is not sure how it happened. I've decided to show restraint with this one, but suffice it to say that road trips get lonely. The thirteen year old in me wants to milk this for all its worth, but I'm not going to. I'm going to leave that up to you.
Swisher continues to make a case for playing everyday. Hard to take him out of the line up right now, and he should probably be starting. Matsui did manage a hit today, but maybe it's time to let Swisher have an everyday spot at the expense of Matsui.
