Kansas City Royals vs New York Yankees (By: Mulder)
Yankees will start with RHP German. He showed great stuff last season already with great-in-the-dirt-stuff, but he was getting smashed nevertheless ( welcome in the mysterious world of baseball ), but this season he played a huge part in that Yankee rotation as he is 9-1 (!) and not just due to big run support either as he posted a 2.60 ERA> 9.27 K/9, 2.60 BB/9, 0.81 HR/9 this season.
On the road he is 5-0 with a 3.45 ERA , 0.98 WHIP.
However, his only loss came against this Royals team indeed: 4.50 ERA that outing, altough he recorded a better 2.01 xFIP that day.
LHP Duffy will start for the Royals who is 3-1 with a 3.45 ERA. Pretty much pitching to his numbers atough that 0.63 HR/9 should be higher.
He got rocked ( in 4 innings ) against the Yankees last season: 11.25 ERA.
You have to give credits to manager Boone, he made a machine out of this team. And sounds strange, but all those injuries helped him i think, he had to be more creative and made some nice signings with Maybin and Morales while all the prospect kids are in destruction mode right now.
Better pen, better starter, better offense, so let's see if they can show that on the field for a clean sweep.
