There is NOva Question
Ivan Nova took the mound yesterday for his audition. I do believe that he passed the audition and the role should be his. He lasted seven and two thirds innings and gave up one run. He struck out 10 batters and raised his record to 10-4.
Girardi said that Phil Hughes will get another start next week. That will put Nova as the sixth man in the rotation. It appears that no matter what Nova does he is always going to be on the bubble.
Now that the Yankees are tied for first place, they face the Boston Red Sox this weekend. At least Sabathia is starting one game. This series is going to be a litmus test for the Yankees starting rotation.
