No Cliff Lee in Game 1. Whew!

CJ Wilson? Can we breathe a sigh of relief as well now that we're facing the Rangers' #2 starter and 15-game winner? It will depend on which part of the Yankee lineup comes up in crucial situations.

When it comes to the matchup of Yankee offense versus CJ Wilson, the Bombers have more than a handful of guys, six to be exact, that have hit him well...from .286 (Robinson Cano 4 for 14 with one double and two walks) to .455 (Marcus Thames 5 for 11). The top of the order guys, Derek Jeter and Nick Swisher, are tough hitters for Wilson. The Captain is 5 for 14 with 1 homer, 2 RBIs, and three walks while Swish has collected 6 hard hits out of 20 at-bats with 3 doubles, 1 homer, and 6 RBIs. Francisco Cervelli and Austin Kearns both are 3 for 7 versus the Texas lefty.
