Lost in the kerfuffle over Pineda’s exceedingly sweaty palms last night was the fact the Yankees and Sox are ranked 12th and 14th in runs per game in the American league at 3.7 and 3.6 respectively. Jon Lester is on the mound for Boston tonight; he’s been very stingy and his peripherals look great despite his 0-2 record, the result of poor run support. Sabathia notched a win his last time out, having a bad sixth inning against Toronto before being lifted for Adam Warren.
More moisture is predicted, this time from more natural sources. Friday night Rivalry action in the Bronx. Lineups follow, comment away.
