973 NY Yankees at Kansas City
If you've been following our daily analysis you know by now that we have serious concerns with James Shields. With Kansas City floundering around the .500 mark he is a prime trade candidate. That may be partially the reason for his recent decline. Then again, it may be that he's trying to pitch through injury in order to be traded to a contender. Either way Shields is not the same pitcher lately that he had been in the past.
Kuroda never seems to get the accolades he deserves. He's been about as consistent a starter the Yankees have had through the years and he just doesn't get the respect in the betting markets. While bigger names always seem to be overrated in New York, Kuroda always seems to have value.
With Shields having problems right now there is no reason to play KC in the favorite role. We will side with New York as a nice dog on Sunday.

Big props for going out on a limb, Bryan. For me this game 'capped to as close to a PK as they get, so clearly the "value" is in the dog. Although I do agree with your sentiments, the Yanks' bullpen will keep me off of this 9 inning job. Again, I think the Bombers lead after 5, but after about the 7th....all bets are off. GL....Go Yanks!
Thanks for your thoughts Bruno. I highly admire your work.
