Full lineup to travel to Va. Tech

When the Yankees travel to Blacksburg, Va. next Tuesday, they'll take their entire starting lineup.

Joe Girardi and Derek Jeter seem excited about the game, which is scheduled for 3 p.m. Tuesday. Jeff Karstens is the probable starter.

"I think it's a wonderful opportunity for our players to see that you don't take life for granted," Girardi said.

"You look at what we do, and it's entertainment," Jeter said. "If we can at least raise some awareness and make people smile and enjoy themselves for a few hours, that's all that we really can do."

"It's something that I've realized," Jeter said. "I really had a new appreciation for life after [9/11]. I think it brings attention to how precious life is. You realize it's going to be a special trip and you can't take anything for granted. This really puts things in perspective for us."
This is a great thing for the Yankees to do. With the Tampa Bay Rays questioning the "Yankee way," this is a good way to show that the Yankees still the same old Yankees in terms of helping others and being generous.
