Yankees / Blue Jays Preview

The new-look and struggling Blue Jays welcome the Yankees to Toronto for a three-game set.  New York comes in having won two of three from Arizona at Yankee Stadium.  Toronto recently lost two of three at home to the White Sox.  Here is a look at the coming weekend North of the border in a short series preview.  

Players to watch:  Robinson Cano.  Cano has been on a tear and has five home runs this season.  He didn’t reach that mark last year until May 22.  The other is Andy Pettitte, who has taken several days off due to back spasms.  He is 2-0 on the year and saved the Yankees bacon twice already.  Sound familiar?

Pitching match-ups:  Friday:  Pettitte vs. Brandon Morrow.  Saturday:  Hiroki Kuroda vs. Mark Buehrle.  Sunday:  Ivan Nova vs. Josh Johnson.

Prediction:  Yankees win two of three.  The Yankees have started to win series, which is the old Joe Torre successful way of doing things.  New York won the only two played in Cleveland because of rainouts, took two of three from Baltimore and two of three from Arizona.
