3 days rest won't be a factor with keuchel but hopefully 3rd time is a charm. other than the game against us at the stadium, has decidely worse splits on the road. have patient at-bats and don't try to pull everything. can't get greedy with this team, will be happy getting into the alds.

I don't know if 3 days rest will be a factor with Keuchel.  Logic says he is young and strong and he'll be ok.  However, pitchers develop a routine of pitch day, off day, throw day, 2 rest days, and then back to pitch day.  Disrupting that routine has been a problem for as many pitchers as it hasn't.

The thing that is most concerning to me is the sudden lack of success against lefties the Yankees have had since August 1st.  Despite their lefty-laden lineup, they were actually quite successful against lefties in the first half of the year, even high quality lefties.  Since August 1st, they haven't done a damn thing.  Unless something changes on a dime, I think the Astros could throw Capuano at us and we wouldn't win.

The biggest problem, our top of the order left handed hitters are slumping badly, earlier in the year they were getting on base, now they can't buy a trip to first base.. Personally think they should change tour guides.. Wink
