Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Chicago White Sox 9/27

The New York Yankees and the Chicago White Sox will play for the final time this weekend and the final time this season this afternoon when the two face off head-to-head. Theoretically the New York Yankees should have swept this series on their way to the postseason but as we all know that didn't happen. I'd settle for another victory today and some momentum heading into the final series against the Boston Red Sox but maybe that's just me. Anyway, the Yankees will send Luis Severino to the mound today to face off against the White Sox starter Erik Johnson. The game will be played at 1:05 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV.

  • Severino will make his 10th career MLB start this afternoon and is fresh off a no-decision against the always tough Toronto Blue Jays. Severino held Toronto to just two runs and three hits in six innings of work and has allowed three runs or fewer in eight of his nine starts this season, the one time coming against the Blue Jays as well. 

  • Johnson makes the start today instead of Jeff Samardzija after a late week decision by manager Robin Ventura. Both Johnson and Samardzija started last Monday during a double-header and the White Sox would rather the right-handed pitcher Johnson pitch over Samardzija, presumably after the Yankees bombed Samardzija in his only start against New York earlier in the season inside US Cellular Field. 

The game means nothing to the White Sox but it means everything to the Yankees so the pressure is all on New York. Everyone loves to be the spoiler, especially former Yankees in David Robertson and Melky Cabrera, so here's to New York not allowing that to happen and taking care of business today in the Bronx. Go Yankees.


  1. You, Daniel, must get some points or you will go down again and we can't have that, can we?

    1. I figured I was going down but that's ok.

    2. I do make mistakes sometimes Daniel, and we who are members of the far as knowledgeable baseball people are rated, must forever finish strong and in the money.

      Did anyone buy that trash! LOL

    3. Wait, we had money on this? Crap, i guess I should stop letting you win.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
