The Yankees are not as hot as they used to be and have been hurt by injuries and some inconsistent starting pitching. Can the Jays take advantage? It is the first trip to Yankee stadium for some of the kids and two of them get to be starting pitchers. In addition Billy McKinney was recalled today to cover for Luke Maile's paternity leave. Will SRF be calm enough to pitch effectively? On Sunday the Jays face their old team mate JA Happ.

In news from New York, Russ Atkins has gone on the record that Gibby will be the manager until the end of the season. Then, as always, his status will be reevaluated.

Friday, 7pm - Marcus Stroman vs. Lance Lynn

Saturday, 1pm - Sean Reid-Foley vs. Luis Severino. Severino has allowed 30 earned runs over his last seven starts.

Sunday, 1pm - Ryan Borucki vs. JA Happ. A match-up of the two Chicago area pitchers.

This series could go in many different directions.
