New York Yankees at Detroit Tigers: Michael Pineda vs. Matt Boyd

The Yanks make a quick stop in Detroit for a make-up game, and--oh god Pineda has to face Miggy. Halp.

Feeling down about the Yankees after they got swept in Toronto? How about a 6.92 ERA pitcher facing a potent Tigers lineup on the road that features a future Hall of Famer and a number of other powerful hitters?

Yes, I'm scared too. Nonetheless, baseball is a weird game, so maybe its randomness will help out here. At least it's just a one-game stop. First pitch is at 7:40 pm on YES; the late start is because the Tigers didn't get in from Anaheim until 4:30 in the morning.

go Yankees, go baseball, go weirdness
