Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Chicago White Sox 7/4


The New York Yankees and the Chicago White Sox will spend their July 4th holiday facing off this afternoon inside US Cellular Field. It seems to me, as bias as I an, that the New York Yankees should be home in the Bronx for major holidays like this, especially since George Steinbrenner was born on this major US holiday, but that's MLB schedule makers for you so I digress. In the contest the Yankees will send CC Sabathia to the mound who had his start pushed back yesterday to face off with a familiar foe in James Shields.

Sabathia has been stellar for much of this season but his last two starts have not been much to write home about unfortunately. Whether that is because he rolled his ankle twice, his degenerative knee condition or whether the league has figured this new version out remains to be seen but for the

Shields has not been Big Game Shields since coming over to the White Sox from the San Diego Padres. Instead Shields has allowed 24 earned runs in 13.2 innings covering four starts for the Sox. Shields did deliver a quality start in his last start though so who knows if he's turning the corner.

The game will be played at 2:10 pm ET inside US Cellular Field and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV. July 4th Baseball. There's nothing better. Go Yankees!
