It seems like after Friday night's extra innings loss to the Blue Jays and with their big trade deadline acquisition David Price taking the mound Saturday afternoon, people are already writing the Yankees' 2015 obituaries. Even though it's August 8th. Even though they're still five games ahead in the loss column. Even though they've been fortunate enough to have success against Price in the past.
The resurgent Ivan Nova gets the start, Brian McCann is back in the lineup, and I have a really good feeling that A-Rod is going to do something awesome today. You can watch the 1:05pm game on YES Network, RSN Sports, MLB Network, or MLB.tv.
Go Yankees, go baseball, boo Price.
