Rotation ShufflePosted: June 5, 2011
With the Yankees returning home this week for a three game set against the Red Sox, a team they are 1-5 against in 2011 and currently own a one game lead over, Joe Girardi has decided to switch things up in his starting rotation. With tomorrow’s day off, the Yankees are going to skip Ivan Nova and pitch Freddy Garcia on Tuesday, AJ Burnett on Wednesday, and CC Sabathia on Thursday. The Yanks need to start winning games against the Sox and Nova won’t really help that. This of course sets up a Sabathia vs. Josh Beckett match-up for Thursday. Should be interesting.
