Last night's loss was not a fun one. Nathan Eovaldi pitched a pretty fantastic game, holding the dangerous Blue Jays lineup to just one run. Unfortuantely, the Yankees could do nothing against R.A. Dickey and the infinitely annoying knuckleball. While many people afterwards were questioning Joe Girardi's decision to put in Brandon Pinder against the heart of their lineup, or for not bringing in a pinch hitter for Stephen Drew, that all ignores the fact that the Yankees cannot hit a knuckleball and should really start learning how to. With one game of this three game series out of the way, they will now send Ivan Nova to the mound to face David Price.

Song of the Day
It's the last day of PA Songs Week on Pinstripe Alley. I figured that we should end this week with what will one day be a classic TV theme song. As always, please link us your song of the day.
Feel free to use this as your open thread for the day. Ivan Nova last pitched against the White Sox and he was fantastic. Here's hoping he can repeat that performance against the Blue Jays.
