New York Yankees (96-56) @ Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (90-61)
Starters: NYY - A.J. Burnett (11-9, 4.22 ERA) LAA - Scott Kazmir (9-8, 5.08 ERA)
Game Info: 12:35 PM PT TV-Fox Sports West & MLB Network, Radio-KLAA 830 AM, KFWB, KWKW 1330 AMTHREE Questions:
- Can the Angels bomb AJ Burnett to keep the Yankee rotation in disarray? The Angels would be doing themselves a favor by pounding Burnett who has the Yankees concerned about how effective he will be in the post-season.
- Can Bobby Abreu break out of his "either draw a walk or strike out" funk that he has been in? I think it might be time to start swinging at the occasional first pitch, Bobby.
- Will the Angels be able to take advantage of a Yankee line-up featuring several reserves (Hairston, Gardner, Molina, Duncan)?
- Scott Kazmir has his worst start as an Angel allowing four earned runs through five innings of work.
- Trying this again since he didn't play last night like I expected him too, but Mike Napoli will continue his resurgence by hitting a home run tonight.
- I wish for a good game from Gary Matthews. I have been really hard on Private Matthews all year, but he has played decently of late and I am willing to give him another chance, so don't eff it up, Junior.
