Quick hit: Looks like the first three slots in the rotation are set

This was just tweeted by Dan Barbarisi:

“Girardi says CC, Kuroda, Nova are pitching thurs-fri-sat this week, lining them up as 1-2-3 starters. Tanaka will start game 4 vs toronto.”

So now wait to find out who will be the fifth starter. Both David Phelps and Michael Pineda have pitched well and it has been reported that the decision has been made but Girardi hasn’t revealed his choice yet.
