New York Yankees at Chicago White Sox, Kuroda vs. Noesi

Friday baseball in Chi-town!

Honor me, but keep it brief

Hector Noesi was an easy guy to root for when he was in the Yankees' minor league system. Overshadowed as a starter by Betances and Brackman and Banuelos, I thought he had as good a shot as any of reaching the majors.

Being successful as a starter in the majors... that still eludes him. Lots of hits, a fair number of walks, terrible facial hair. He's the kind of righty even Derek Jeter should find a way to hit against.

I fully expect him to pitch 8 innings of shutout ball against this lineup.


In the pinstriped corner, Hiroki Kuroda hopes to continue to build on recent positive outings: he's now allowed 3 runs or less in 3 of his last 4, with the outlier against the Mets when he gave up 4.

Go Yankees. Go baseball. Happy Friday.
