Daily Yankees Predictions 5/15/14: A Clash of Rookies to end the Subway Series

It's pretty clear that our pitching staff is Tanaka and four people not named Tanaka. However, suddenly a new challenger has appeared. Chase Whitley will make his major league debut tonight. Also, it's a pointstravaganza in the PSA DP thread today!

Masahiro Tanaka saw that the Yankees had not won since he last pitched. The Yankees were in need of a win to end their four game losing streak. So, he pitched a complete game, four hit, eight strikeout, no walk shutout. Tanaka's pretty good at this pitching thing. Sigh, why does it take so long for him to pitch again?

Meanwhile, let's break some records!

The Aarons were 100% sober for the math yesterday, as the game was enjoyable enough to not require booze. It's a good thing they were not drunk, as yesterday was record setting for the Pinstripe Alley Daily Predictions Thread. We had, and this is not a typo, seven people score 4,000 points each. Those seven are Yankees199, Billy W, Tanya, paulo, noonoo, kshah, and Lilly.

However, that would not be enough as the 4,000 point threshold has finally been breached by one Andrew Mearns. Andrew scored a resounding 6,000 points yesterday for the win. The only questions he did not answer correctly were innings pitched and Yankees left on base. Andrew, congrats. PSAers, you have a new goal!

It's a battle of the rookies on the pitching mound at Citi Field tonight. Chase Whitley will make his major league debut for the Yankees while Jacob deGrom will make his major league debut for the Mets. I don't know about anyone else, but I'm always excited to see a kid's major league debut. With all the injuries, and the fact that Vidal Nuno and David Phelps are iffy at best, Whitley has a chance to make a case for himself to remain in the majors with a good start tonight. Here's hoping for the best, and a series split.

Let's Go Yankees.
