Strat-O-Matic 2012 New York Yankees Replay Game 141


Hello and welcome to Game 141 of my 2012 Strat-O-Matic New York Yankees season replay. Today the Yankees play the third and final game of the series against their division rivals the Tampa Bay Rays. The Yankees have won the first two games so they've already won the series so for today's game they are going for a sweep of the Rays.

If you missed the Yankees' previous game you can click here for Game 140. On the mound for the Yankees today is Ivan Nova (2-7). In 13 starts this season Nova has thrown 90 innings while surrendering 128 hits, 32 walks, 86 strikeouts for an ERA of 6.42. If you've followed my Yankees replay you know that Ivan Nova has been just terrible. In his real 2012 season, Nova went (12-8) and started 28 games while pitching 170 innings. In those 170 innings, he gave up 194 hits, 56 walks, and 153 strikeouts for an ERA of 5.02. In real life, he wasn't great but he was much better than he's played for me. Every time I put him in he seems to lose so I've only used him is in the bullpen when we are winning or losing badly and I need someone to eat some innings to save my better pitchers. Today is Nova's final chance as a starter this season so we'll see how it goes today.

The Rays have David Price (11-11) on the mound. In 29 starts this season he's pitched 177 innings while allowing 147 hits, 61 walks, 167 strikeouts for an ERA of 2.84. It looks like Nova will have his work cut out for him today.
