It's a supernova! Get it?! Actually, wait, a supernova is a dying star. I should probably try something else. Are there goodenoughtowinnovas?
Here's the Yankees lineup that will be facing Brandon McCarthy of the Diamondbacks:
Ivan Nova will be starting for the Yankees and looks to bounce back from a not-so-stellar start on April 5 in Detroit. He surrendered four runs on five hits in 4.2 innings. He walked two and struck out five. In other words, it was what's become a typical Nova start, completely maddening.
Here's the Diamondbacks lineup he'll be facing:
There are some familiar faces in that lineup, namely Chavez who was with the Yankees in 2011 and 2012 and Hinske who was part of the 2009 World Series Championship team.
- Andy Pettitte threw a bullpen and "felt great." The big test will be how he feels in the morning.
- Derek Jeter has lightened his workout load down in Tampa which isn't a good sign at all. Looks like his May return could be in jeopardy.
- Blerg. (Okay, that's not a note. It's just my reaction to the Jeter news.)
Enjoy the game and go Yankees!
