LoHud had this a couple hours ago:
"Joe Girardi just announced that CC Sabathia will start on Thursday, Hiroki Kuroda on Friday and Ivan Nova on Saturday. He said it’s safe to read into that order, meaning Sabathia, Kuroda and Nova will open as the top three starters pitching in Houston.
"That leaves, as expected, Masahiro Tanaka to make his major-league debut in Toronto, likely in the fourth game of the season.
"Girardi said he has picked his fifth starter, but because he has not told all of the pitchers involved, he will not announce it until tomorrow."
Phelps or Pineda? If it's Pineda, this will be the first time ever that Alphonso missed a prediction. He has repeatedly said that the Piñata will never pitch an inning in Yankee pinstripes at the major league level.
This is a crisis in the making. If Alphonso is wr...wr...wro...--well, you know the word I mean. It would either be the best-ever case of reverse juju (did I just jinx it?) or the simple collapse of an infallible Yankees analyst.
The tension is killing me (Anonymous will only hope). And people wonder why I drink.
Actually, any excuse will do, but this is a damn good one.
