The Yankees have determined that their three horses will pitch against the Blue Jays. Obviously this is subject to change if the Yankees clinch, so don’t write these starters down in stone. Many fans believed Sabathia would get the ball on Friday, lining him up for a Game 1 ALDS start, but Joe Girardi has not confirmed that notion. The Yanks have got to clinch first. The Blue Jays currently have a 80-75 record and they definitely want to finish above .500, so they’ll sell out to win these games.

Message to the Yankee pitchers. Jose Bautista can hit the ball far. Really far….
