The Yankees will host the Orioles on Tuesday having taken three out of four and feeling quite good about themselves... OR having split a series with a last place team.

'My Man' Andy goes for the good guys against Mitch Talbot, who spent all of last year in the minors. Talbot has maintained a fine ERA (3.73), but digging a bit deeper reveals how extremely lucky he is. His FIP is 5.23 due to a low K rate (3.6/9) and a relatively high HR rate (1.2/9). He's also walked as many as he's K'd (24 in 60.1 innings).
