Morning Bits: Playoff roster, Nova, Hughes & more

Good morning all. The Yankees have now lost 7 out of 10. The season is full of peaks and valleys and this by far is one of the valley’s. The Yankees have had many peaks in the season though as they are still up 5.5 games on Baltimore. The Yankees could use a win this afternoon with Hughes on the mound facing Britton. Game time is for 1:05PM EST.

Enjoy the day and the game.  Now for some links….

  1. Nova is really lost. I wrote about it earlier this year – he is trying to be a strikeout pitcher instead of the groundball guy he was last year. He’s fallen in love with his breaking pitches and forgets about his bread and butter – his 92-94 mph sinking Fastball down in the zone. Everything he throws is from the waist to the thigh right in the hitting zone. Someone needs to sell him on the Sinking Fastball as his main pitch.
