Ivan Nova- The Yanks Secret to Success

As I wrote 9 days ago, Ivan Nova is a legit starting pitcher in MLB. He solidified the 4th starting spot on the Yanks. His first outing – 6 innings, 3 ER, 3K, 2 BB, and most importantly a win. He was worth 66 points in my fantasy league. Not bad for my 14th round fantasy pick. If Nova is still out there in waivers he is a must pickup.

The Yankees are 3-2 and they need the back half of their lineup to continue to impress. As Taylor just wrote the Rays are in trouble and the Red Sox have not won a game yet. Obviously, the American League East is not won during the first week of the season. However, it is nice to lead out of the box. We all know that Baltimore will not remain undefeated and that Toronto is a fraud.

Freddy Garcia pitches tomorrow against Minnesota. I’m curious to see if he can regain his 2010 magic and help Nova hold down the back half of this lineup. If he can then Joe Giradi knew what he was doing casting Nova and Garcia as the 4 and 5.
