Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Kansas City Royals 5/27

This afternoon the New York Yankees and the Kansas City Royals play in the classic afternoon getaway game with the Yankees setting their sails to the west coast after the ballgame. In the finale of the three game series here inside Yankee Stadium the Yankees will send Michael Pineda to the mound looking to bounce back from a couple bad starts while Chris Young starts for the Royals. The game will be played at 1:05 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV.

  • Pineda is coming off a pair of bad starts against these Kansas City Royals and the Texas Rangers after striking out 16 Baltimore Orioles on Mother’s Day three starts ago. Last time out against the Royals Pineda allowed five earned runs on 10 hits, both season highs, in a Yankees series loss.

  • Young has pitched well since coming into the Royals rotation from the bullpen allowing just one run across all four victories he has secured this season. One of those victories included a win over the Yankees on May 15.

This is quite possibly the worst part of any MLB season, and I touched on this a bit in this morning’s TGP Daily Poll, as the Yankees head out west to start a long road trip. I hate the West Coast games because they don’t start until 10:00 pm ET meaning with me having to be up at 5:00 am ET by the time the game starts the most sleep I am going to get is seven hours. If I stay up for even a Rob Manfred Special, three hours or less, I’m down to four hours of sleep. Now I am a huge “I’ll sleep when I’m dead” kind of person but I also have to keep in mind my children will want me to play, talk to them and be a living and breathing human being.. So yeah. I’m going to miss a few games. Anyway as long as we’re winning those games that is all that matters to me, go Yankees!!
