The Yankees still have a glimmer of hope for the wild card, even though they lost against the Red Sox they are still just 2.5 games out of the wild card. They continue to be hit by injuries, Derek Jeter is out for the season, Brett Gardner might only be able to run and A-Rod has been in and out of the lineup with various leg issues.
Meanwhile on the Jays side of the ledger, will Edwin be back with his sore wrist? Will Colby Rasmus' body be healed? Moises Sierra has been the hot hand, can he keep it going? Meanwhile the Ryan Goins for 2013 train has derailed, how many games will he start?
Game one sees the ageless Andy Pettitte facing the not-quite-as-old RA Dickey.
On Wednesday the matchup is very non-exciting, Phil Hughes vs. JA Happ. If we were betting as to which game in the series would see the most runs it would be this one, but it probably won't happen, baseball is funny like that.
Thursday sees Todd Redmond facing Huroki Kuroda. The Jays were able to get to Kuroda last time around, can they repeat that?
This will be Mariano Rivera's last visit to Toronto. I assume the Jays will give him some parting gifts.
