So far, we know the times of all seven games, and now we know the starting pitchers for the first three and most likely the fourth.
Here they are (via Sam Borden):
|Game||Angels starters||Yankees starters|
|Game 1 (@NY)||John Lackey (11-8, 3.83)||CC Sabathia (19-8, 3.37)|
|Game 2 (@NY)||Joe Saunders (16-7, 4.60)||A.J. Burnett (13-9, 4.04)|
|Game 3 (@LA)||Jered Weaver (16-8, 3.75)||Andy Pettitte (14-8, 4.16)|
|Game 4 (@LA)||Scott Kazmir (10-9, 4.89)||Sabathia (probable)|
It came as a surprise to most people that Joe Saunders would start game 2, as well as the fact that the Angels would announce their plans of a four-man rotation so early. Joe Girardi has said he is “definitely considering” using a three-man rotation, but nothing is set in stone.
Something to be aware of: The weather. It’s going to be awful for the series opener, and it may not even happen tomorrow night. I’ll have a breakdown of the pitchers and lineups posted tomorrow.
