After an unexpected off-day, the Yankees open a series against Felipe Paulino and the Kansas City Royals.

On paper, this game belongs to the Yankees: Paulino has given up more than a hit per inning and he's allowed 30 walks in just under 100 innings. Things being so lopsided, you'd think this is the reverse lock of the week, with Paulino likely to carry a no-no into the 7th. Frankly, I don't care what the final score is or how AJ pitches, so long as the Yankees get the win. Good teams are supposed to beat bad teams.
