Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Toronto Blue Jays 9/25

Good morning everyone and Happy Sunday to you all. This could possibly be the first meaningless game of the Yankees season this afternoon inside the Rogers Centre after the New York offense has made it a habit of disappearing at the worst possible times here down the stretch. So here we go as the New York Yankees send Michael Pineda to the mound to face off with the Blue Jays starter Marco Estrada.

Pineda looked much better than he had in his last start where he struck out 11 Tampa Bay Rays batters while allowing just two runs on five hits in 5.1 innings of work. Pineda also pitched well against Toronto last time out against them as well throwing five scoreless innings on August 16th in the Bronx. 

The game will be played at 1:07 pm ET inside the Rogers Centre and can be seen on the YES Network, TBS and MLB TV. I said this on Twitter yesterday but it's worth repeating again today. It's funny how teams say you can't win a division in April or May but if you can't win one how come you can lose one? The Yankees started out this season 9-17, swap those records and the Yankees are in the postseason. Even out the records at 13-13 and the Yankees are four games closer to the Wild Card and the division. Check the standings and do the math. Depressing, isn't it? Go Yankees!
