MLB Saturday

New York Yankees at Chicago White Sox
The Yanks are struggling with 4 losses out of last 5. It seems like just back 1 week ago the Yankees pitching was shutting down opponents and winning games. Now 3 out of those 4 losses comes at allowing 5 runs or more? Yes, the arms are over used at this point and Adam Dunn spoiled David Robertson's chance to close for the second time in May. If you look at Yankees last 10 games their starters have gone 7 inning or more only twice. Matter of fact New York starters has gone 5 inning or less 50% in their last 10 games. Today's matinee will have Yankees sending Left hand pitcher Vidal Nuno in 7th start since his promotion. He has not gone more than 6 inning and has not thrown more than 82 pitches this year. Most likely New York will have to let him go closer to 100 pitches this time around. He'll need to survive 6 or more inning to relive Yankees pen. It will be a tall order.  The White Sox will send veteran John Danks who's been getting banged around this season, but much of that has come on the road. Danks in friendly confines of US Cellular Field is pitching 75% quality games. John Danks in a bounce back spot and we like to Chicago to continue tormenting the Yankees. FYI the White Sox has moved into third place on the money rankings. Let's go Pale Hose, looking to hand the first consecutive 3 games loss in a series to New York this season.

CHICAGO WHITE SOX +106 for 1 unit(L)
WTF, this one was in the bag. 3 run lead going into the 9th and we lose.
