The Toronto Blue Jays (69-87) beat the New York Yankees (90-66) 6-0, last night at the Rogers Centre from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. W - Brandon Morrow (9-7), L - Ivan Nova (12-8) Game Stats: Ivan Nova did not have a good game and he probably won't the make playoffs starting rotation. He went 4.2 innings, allowed 6 hits, gave up 4 runs, walked 2 and struck out 4 batters. Robinson Cano had three hits including a double. Russell Martin had two hits lncluding a double as well. No Pitching, No offense, no nonthing. This game was extremly boring to watch and there wasn't any interest even following while the offense looked liked they couldn't hit a ball in their life. Although, you have to give Brandon Morrow credit for doing a great job shuting down the Yankees lineup, but his counterpart Ivan Nova doesn't belong in the starting rotation come playoff time. He hasn't been that good this season. I don't trust him from the get go and the Yankees management has to do right thing which is not put him in the starting rotation when the playoffs begin.
  • Their next game will be Friday night, when they play the Toronto Blue Jays in the Rogers Centre at 7:07 pm on YES.
  • Pitching matchup will be RHP Hiroki Kuroda (14-11, 3.34 ERA) vs Chad Jenkins (0-2, 4.24 ERA).

What will the NYY starting rotation look like once the playoffs begin?

Last year in the playoffs, Ivan Nova was asked to his job in game 5 of the ALDS against the Detroit Tigers and he couldn't get the job done in the biggest game of his major league career. There is now way this guy should be in the starting rotation or on the postseason roster. Period. He has been that awful this season and he showed last night why he doesn't in playoff...
