The Yankees and Astros will play the rubber game of their opening series at a soggy Yankee Stadium on Thursday. Nathan Eovaldi will get his first start of 2016 opposite Astros starter Mike Fiers, weather permitting. It looks like they should be able to play the game at some point, but it isn't going to be pretty.

Joe Girardi is sticking with his lineup from last night despite the earlier game time. Hopefully the team can play this game before they take off for what is promised to be a frigid home opener at Comerica Park on Friday.
