Yankees-Indians: Game 2 lineups

I'm here in Cleveland. Sheinin's in Boston. I'll be in Denver tomorrow. Sheinin will go to New York.

Now that we've got that straight: Joe Torre sticks with the same htiters against the right-hander Carmona, reasoning he likes Doug Mientkiewicz's defense over Jason Giambi at first, and is counting on Hideki Matsui as the DH against the right-hander Carmona. "He's been here five years, and there aren't many players that I've trusted more than him in key situations," Torre said of Matsui.

Someone pointed out to Torre that there are a lot of Yankee haters around. "Really?" he said. Kidding.

New York:
Johnny Damon -- 7
Derek Jeter -- 6
Bobby Abreu -- 9
Alex Rodriguez -- 5
Hideki Matsui -- DH
Jorge Posada -- 2
Robinson Cano -- 4
Melky Cabrera -- 8
Doug Mientkiewicz -- 3

Andy Pettitte -- 1

Cleveland:
Grady Sizemore -- 8
Asdrubal Cabrera -- 4
Travis Hafner -- DH
Victor Martinez -- 2
Ryan Garko -- 3
Jhonny Peralta -- 6
Kenny Lofton -- 7
Jason Michaels -- 9
Casey Blake -- 5

Fausto Carmona -- 1

Start is in half an hour.
