Game 150 Preview: Yankees at Blue Jays

Seriously? Game number 150 is already upon us. It's hard to believe that we'll already have playoff baseball in two weeks. New York remains four games in front of the Boston Red Sox in the loss column, and eight games in the loss column over the Rays. Their magic number is now six to clinch the playoffs and 10 to win the AL East. 

In any event, the Yankees will look to rebound after Boone Logan and Cory Wade combined to surrender the game-winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning last night.

Bartolo Colon will take the hill for the Yankees. His last trip to Toronto (July 14)  was by far the worst of the year: 0.2 innings, six hits, two walks, eight runs but only three were charged to him. His game score was 16. However, his last start against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (I still hate that name) was very strong, going seven innings and allowing one unearned run in an environment that hasn't been friendly to the Yankees. 

Rookie Henderson Alvarez takes the ball for the Blue Jays in an attempt to take a series win. He's been performing well for Toronto, starting seven games and pitching 43.2 innings allowing 41 hits, seven walks, 15 runs and striking out 29. He primarily throws a fastball that will hover around 93-94 mph while occasionally mixing in a changeup and slider. This will be his first start against the Yankees. 

Look for a game thread at 1:00 PM. Enjoy baseball and college football!
