Rotation Set

The Yankees starting rotation is now set, with Michael Pineda sliding into the five spot. This means that teams will have to face two very tall pitchers in a row if Pineda starts the first or second game of a series (assuming three games). This is a competitive advantage. In other sports anyways, less so in baseball. But still, we've got some tall pitchers. Nova's pretty tall too. It may not necessarily pay dividends, but if MLB decides to make the one-game sudden death playoff round a three-on-three half court basketball game, we'll be in good shape.
