Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles 7/20


The New York Yankees and the Baltimore Orioles are preparing for Game Three in the Bronx and this is another big game for both clubs. New York is looking to “declare” themselves as GM Brian Cashman stated while Baltimore has the Boston Red Sox nipping at their heels in the American League East. Both teams need a victory and Buck Showalter will rage if it’s not his club which gives me extra incentive to want to win. I’m spiteful but so is he so I digress. In the contest tonight the Yankees will send Michael Pineda to the mound looking to be Big Mike while the Orioles counter with their ace Yovani Gallardo.

Pineda seems to be resorting back to his old ways and that is not getting enough attention in Yankee-Land. Pineda has allowed five earned runs in each of his last two starts for the Bombers but will remain in the rotation because, according to Joe Girardi, “there are no other options to take his spot.” Yes Girardi see’s you Sevy. Please put your hand down.

Gallardo has not been able to go deep into games this season which is a disturbing trend for Buck and the Orioles. Gallardo went just five innings in his last start after throwing 30 pitches in the first inning of the start and has put a definite strain on a strong Orioles bullpen.

The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV. I know this was a couple days ago and I know that I say this a lot but seriously, Buck needs to let it go. The Yankees are set to celebrate the 20-year anniversary of their 1996 World Series victory next month, a World Series victory that Showalter was fired before and could not see. TWENTY YEAR anniversary Buck. Quit hating the Yankees, quit aligning your pitchers a certain way just to mess with us. Quit having Kevin Gausman throw at Alex Rodriguez’s head after he hit a monster and eventual game-winning home run off your boy. Get over it and get over yourself dude.


Hey Buck….. Go Yankees!
