Two games still need to be played at Progressive Field, and thanks to Mother Nature it looks like a doubleheader on May 13th is going to happen. Both ball clubs have the day off so seems logical, but certainly not beneficial for the older and injured Yankees.
That Monday would have been a travel day for the Yankees who have two-three game sets on West. First against the Rockies in Denver, followed by a series in Kansas City vs. the Royals before the two-game stop off against the Tribe.
My guess is the Yankees are not going to like having a 16-game stretch, but it looks like MLB will have no other choice.
Before all the rain, the Yankees were rolling on all cylinders.
After beating Tigers ace Justin Verlander, the Yankees outscored the Indians 25-7 in the first two of the scheduled four games.
The Yankees have not seen their AL East rivals since beating the O’s in the ALDS last October, so this series should be a dogfight.
CC Sabathia, Hiroki Kuroda and Andy Pettitte are slated to take the hill against Buck Schowalter birds, which is about the best you could ask for.
The Weather Channel is reporting 100% precipitation in New York for Friday, so expect rain delays or God forbid another canceled game.
If you haven’t been to a game yet this season, get yourself some New York Yankees tickets and go cheer on the Bronx Bombers.
