The Yankees have the Big Man on the hill tonight going up against highly touted rookie Kyle Drabek. The Yankees can at times struggle against lefties, but CC Sabathia owns the Blue Jays. They can clinch with a win tonight or if the White Sox beat the Red Sox.

Here are some notes:

At this point I’ll settle for the Yankees backing into the playoffs, but they need to start clicking on all cylinders again. Most of the team is healthy; there should be no excuses for losing. Locking up a playoff spot tonight, no matter how they do it, would give them more time to rest their regulars.
