Brandon Morrow (10-6) vs. Ivan Nova (1-0)
Morrow vs. Yankees Hitting
This will be Morrow’s final start of the season; the Blue Jays know their postseason chances are zilch and are looking to preserve the arm of one of their most promising young pitchers. Morrow has exceeded expectations in 2010, winning in the double-digits and, in limited action, being near the top of the AL in strikeouts.

The Red Sox are five and a half games out of the AL East lead and out of the AL Wild Card spot, chasing the Yankees and Rays for both. At this point, it looks like the Yankees and the Rays have the AL East and AL Wild Card tied up. Whoever does not win the AL East will ..click here to read more

In this edition of my blog I will preview the AL East division.
1. New York Yankees
I know it’s the homer pick to go for the New York Yankees as the top team in the AL East division this year. But how can you not say they are a favorite to win the AL East this season? This is literally the same exact team that won the championship in 2009 (minus Johnny Damon, ..click here to read more
