Pitching Matchups for Angels Series

The Yankees finish up a tough roadtrip tonight trying to win the series in Detroit with Joba on the mound against young Rick Porcello. They will begin a 4 game series with the Angels tomorrow night at home. It will be the start of a 8 game homestand, the Yankees have played the least amount of games at home in the majors up to this point and it will be nice to be home for a while. Here are the matchups vs the Angels: Tomorrow: Anthony Ortega vs A.J. Burnett Friday- Jered Weaver vs Andy Pettitte Saturday- Matt Palmer vs CC Sabathia Sunday- Joe Saunders vs Phil Hughes The Yankees never beat the Angels but this is their chance to win some games against them. Ortega will be making his second career start tomorrow, Weaver is good but struggles against the Yankees and Matt Palmer is making his 5th career start.

  1. We should easily take 3 of 4, we have a huge advantage with those pitching matchups, Weaver is the only decent pitcher in that bunch. Tonight will likely seal Joba's fate, if he is still throwing 91-92, he is going to the pen. But what happens if he goes to the pen and still throws 91-92....Then what???
