New year, new format. Let’s go!
On the Hill:
Thursday: Justin Verlander vs. CC Sabathia
Saturday: Brad Penny vs. A.J. Burnett
Sunday: Max Scherzer vs. Phil Hughes
Players to Watch:
Miguel Cabrera: If he’s sober, he’s dangerous with a bat (and I guess when he isn’t sober too).
Alex Rodriguez: He had the best spring training of any Yankee by far. But six homers and 15 RBIs in 49 at-bats in Florida/Arizona doesn’t guarantee success in New York with 40 degree weather.
Benefit of the doubt goes to the home team. Yankees win two out of three after Mr. Verlander shuts them out today.
