Royals-Yankees Series Preview

The Yankees (100-56) begin a three-game set with the Royals (64-92) tonight.

Head-to-Head:
The Yanks took two of three from the Royals way back in April (doesn’t it seem like yesterday?), and now they will finish the season series in the Bronx.

Pitching Matchups:

Date: Royals starters: Yankees starters:
Mon., 7:05 p.m. L.Hochevar (7-11, 5.98) Chad Gaudin (5-10, 4.78)
Tues., 7:05 p.m. A. Lerew (0-1, 3.86) A.J. Burnett (12-9, 4.19)
Wed., 7:05 p.m. R. Tejeda (4-2, 3.41) J. Chamberlain (9-6, 4.72)

Lineups:

Royals: Yankees:
Mitch Maier LF Brett Gardner CF
Yuniesky Betancourt SS Melky Cabrera LF
Billy Butler 1B Robinson Cano 2B
Mike Jacobs DH Jorge Posada DH
Alberto Collaspo 2B Eric Hinske 3B
Mark Teahen RF Shelley Duncan RF
Miguel Olivo C Juan Miranda 1B
Alex Gordon 3B Francisco Cervelli C
Josh Anderson CF Ramiro Pena SS


My Outlook:
Just by looking at the lineup anyone could tell who little the Yankees care about this game. Robinson Cano is the only player in his playoff spot tonight. This should be a fun game to watch, if it ever gets played (rain).

Remaining opponents weighted winning percentage: 46 percent
Magic Number: 0!
