At 4:10 pm, our selection is on the New York Yankees over the New York Mets. When JA Happ came to the Yankees from the Blue Jays at the end of the 2018 season, he proceeded to go on a tear, putting up a 7-0 record with a 2.69 ERA in 11 starts in pinstripes. That performance convinced the Yankees to re-sign the then-36-year-old southpaw to a two year, 34 million contract (albeit after they released him). But as could be expected, Happ came back to earth quite a bit in 2019, posting a 4.91 ERA in 31 games (30 starts). He's having a better season so far in 2020 which is good since he'll likely be a free agent again in a few months. Happ is 1-1 with a 4.05 ERA in four starts covering 20 innings. Happ has had success against the Mets in his career, going 4-2 with a 3.41 ERA in 12 appearances (10 starts) covering just over 63 innings. And he's also enjoyed success at CitiField, going 2-1 with a 3.27 ERA in six games here (five starts). The Mets are 4-10 (-10 games on the moneyline) in their last 14 games vs. LH starters. Take the Yanks. As always, good luck...Al McMordie.
