Yanks to face top pick this Saturday

By

The St. Petersburg Times is reporting that David Price, the first overall pick in the 2007 draft, will take the mound for the first game action of his professional career this Saturday when the Rays visit Legends Field. The big lanky southpaw reminds me a bit of Andy Pettitte, but he’s got much better pure stuff (low-90s heat, wipeout slider and sinking changeup). The game is on YES, and should be fun to watch regardless of who’s throwing for the Bombers.

    nice!

    got tix for that game and flying into Tampa tomorrow. That news makes for a good weekend. If i can catch Longoria also, it will have been well worth it….well that and seeing the Yanks play nice and early.
