The Rays are coming to town for a four-game set starting Monday. It will, of course, be an imperative series as the Yanks lead them by a 1/2 game in the AL East. Here are the pitching match-ups for the series:
*Monday: SuperNova (1-0, 4.30) vs. Matt Garza (14-8, 3.88)
Tuesday: Philthy (16-8, 4.31) vs. Panty Shields (13-12, 4.86)
Wednesday: AJ (10-13, 5.08) vs. Wade Davis (12-9, 4.19)
Thursday: CC (20-6, 3.05) vs. David Price (17-6, 2.79)
*If you are going to Monday’s game please get there early. The team is unveiling a monument in Monument Park for George Steinbrenner prior to the game. The festivities are set to begin at 5:00 p.m.7:00 p.m., so, as I said before, get there early. What’s interesting is that Hitman and Joe Torre will attend the ceremony (the Dodgers are off Monday). It will be the first time either of them have stepped foot in either Yankee Stadium since their departure in 2007. Should be a good time.
