Rain, rain go away

As those of you in the area already know, it’s not particularly nice out. The forecast for this weekend isn’t much better. So what does rain do to the Yankees chances in the series?

The biggest issue is how it affects the starting pitchers. If the Yankees are able to use only three starters, their rotation has the edge over the Angels. If rain forces them to go to a fourth, suddenly that advantage changes – the Angels’ depth (i.e. Scott Kazmir vs. Chad Gaudin) would then seem to give them an edge.

Obviously the Yankees want to play in the best conditions possible. But playing in poor weather might be prefereable if it allows them to run CC Sabathia out there three times.
