New York Yankees
Here’s an interesting fact for today’s game. Ivan Nova and Edwin Jackson have combined for 11 wins this year, which is 11 wins more than Cliff Lee has.
The best thing about today’s game is that it reduces the number of non-DH games the Yankees will play by one. Everything else is secondary to that. I was hoping the Yankees would take two of three in this series so in theory I should be happy. That being said It’d make me happier to see Ivan Nova getting his ERA down further to more closely reflect how well I think he’s pitched this season, and if he can do that today in a game the Yankees can win then all the better. I’d estimate that unless Nova gives up zero runs, the Yankees won’t win this game, so that’s the goal. Keeping the ball away from LF is probably going to be key in that case. And away from SS. And away from 3B. And away from CF.
I’m sensing a pattern here…
