Baltimore vs NY Yankees by GameChanger
This is the matchup against two very unpredictible pitchers but I think that Ubaldo Jimenez for Baltimore is pitcher with bigger variety of pitches and altough he is very unpredictible I think that this season he will be a lot better, especially now when he changed his pitching technique.
For Yankees, Severino will take the mound and he is pretty much same story as Jimenez but he is playing a lot better in triple A than he is in MLB, he also had couple of game in AAA and in that time Jimenez never went outside MLB. Severino had ERA of 5.08 last season but he didn't wallk a lot batters.
When it comes to hitters, Baltimore has by far most powerful hitters in MLB, and middle of their lineup with Jones, Machado, Trumbo and Davis looks pretty terrifing. Usually Baltimore has pretty low number of hits per game and they don't walk much but that's not suprising considering that most of their hits are homeruns or extra base hits. Jones, Machado, Davis and Trumbo together had 150 homeruns last season and they lead MLB by far when it comes to homeruns. Trumbo alone had 47 homeruns in 2016 season which is most by far in MLB.
Both clubs have one of the best bullpens in the league and I think that scoring in this game in 8 and 9 inning is going to be close to impossible, but again I'm giving advantage to Baltimore because one bad pitch can lead to homerun and one point, on the other side Yankees have couple of good power hitters (Holiday, Bird and Carter) but they aren't anywhere near Baltimore power hitters.
My pick: Baltimore -1.5
