For today's assignment, you get to be the Yankee manager in the World Series. It will be October then, so pretending to be the leader of an Evil Empire should be a piece of cake.
Let's set the scene. Your Yanks are facing their crosstown rivals, the Mets, and you are preparing for Game 3. In the opener in Yankee Stadium, Tom Glavine faced Chien-Ming Wang and threw a six hit shutout at you. In Game 2, starters John Maine and Roger Clemens were both gone before the end of the 5th inning, and the home nine won a wild 11-9 shootout. As you get off the 7 train at Willets Point and prepare to enter Shea Stadium, you still haven't decided whether Andy Pettitte or Phil Hughes will get the start to face lefty Oliver Perez, let alone who will be in the starting lineup with no DH. So, who gets the start and what is your lineup? Here is the Yankee roster, although I doubt that you will need reminding.
