The Yankees, after being swept by the Rays this weekend, hope to bounce back in Camden Yards against the Baltimore Orioles, who were on the other side of a sweep this weekend against the Minnesota Twins. Ivan Nova will make his regular season debut tonight against Brian Matusz, a promising young pitcher in the Orioles organization. Actually, looking at their birthdays, Nova and Matusz are only off by a month in terms of their age. Needless to say, they both make me feel old. Here's hoping the Bronx Bombers can net their first win tonight. Go Yankees.
