... I wake up to this little tidbit of information via LoHud about Javy being skipped over for Ivan Nova this weekend.
It's only for one start, but it's better than nothing. At least the Yankees are making decisions that give the team the best chance to win rather than throwing more unearned loyalty to a veteran who's pitching like dogshit. That being said, I'm sure Javy will be back in the rotation after he gets skipped on Sunday, but you never know. If Nova goes out and pitches well again this weekend, he could make the decision very difficult. At the very least, the Yankees will step on the field this Sunday with a chance to win, something they wouldn't have with Javy out there.
