The Yankees aren’t saying yet, but this is what the weekend looks like:
Friday: Andy Pettitte (1-0, 1.50) vs. 38pitches.com (2-1, 2.84), 7:05 p.m.
Saturday: Jeff Karstens (welcome back) vs. Josh Beckett (3-0, 1.50), 3:55 p.m.
Sunday: Chase Wright (1-0, 5.40) vs. Daisuke Matsuzaka (1-2, 2.70), 8 p.m.
I’m sure there will be panic in the streets. I somehow do not think the season will hinge on what happens in April. I know every game counts but no team in the division is going to run away and hide.
Meanwhile, where is the love for Mike Myers? Eight games: 7 1 0 0 4 4. He has already thrown more innings this month than in any month all last season.
