It’s time to take a look at the ALCS pitching matchups, as the Yankees and Rangers announced their starters for the first four games today.
|Game 1||TBS, Friday, 8 p.m.||CC Sabathia vs. C.J. Wilson|
|Game 2||TBS, Saturday, 4 p.m.||Phil Hughes vs. Colby Lewis|
|Game 3||TBS, Monday, 8 p.m.||Cliff Lee vs. Andy Pettitte|
|Game 4||TBS, Tuesday, 4 p.m.||Tommy Hunter vs. A.J. Burnett|
Since the Rangers-Rays series went to five games, the matchups aren’t very even. It’s really too bad, actually. A Sabathia-Lee Game 1 matchup would’ve been great to watch.
I still think the Yankees should’ve gone with a three-man rotation. Flip Bondy of the New York Daily News doesn’t have much confidence in Burnett either.
I’ll have a more in-depth series preview posted before Game 1. And look for my live Tweets from Yankee Stadium on Tuesday!
