While Felix Hernandez takes the mound against the charmed Orioles out west, the Yankees play two against the Blue Jays – the first pair in a stretch of seven games to be played against the Jays in the next 13 days.
Before this day is done the Yanks could be up by 1.5 in the standings, down by 1.5, or somewhere in between.
In the first game of the Yanks-Jays twin-bill, Andy Pettitte makes his long-awaited return against Henderson Alvarez, while the nightcap features David Phelps vs. Ricky Romero, who’s trying to end a streak of 6 straight starts without a win.
We may see Brett Gardner pinch-run before the night is through and we’re almost certain to see a heavy dose of the Yankee bullpen given the limited innings we can expect from both starters in pinstripes.
Looks like it’s moving day in the Bronx – let’s make it a good one.
