Leads league rookies with 12 wins--but wins are a stupid stat so who cares, right?

Additional notes after the jump.

Additional Notes:

  • Justin Morneau has been scratched from the lineup with some sort of foot aliment. Joe Mauer is playing first base.
  • Michael Cuddyer is not in the lineup, but may be available off the bench (heard that one before).
  • Alex Rodriguez is in the Yankees lineup for the first time since early July. Please contain your excitement.
