Game 152: Minnesota @ New York Yankees

In a move suggesting they still have aspirations of winning the AL East, New York has moved their best starter up a day in order to get him a chance at 3 more regular season starts. Young* Luis Severino (13-6, 2.93 ERA, 156 ERA+, 1.031 WHIP) is now in line for the final start of the regular season, home against Toronto on October 1 ... which would make it improbable that the 2nd Wild Card team would face him in the AL Wild Card game on October 3. If nothing else changes, it looks like that game would be started by former Twin Jaime Garcia.

Opposing the Yankees will be the 'ageless' Bartolo Colon (6-13, 6.39 ERA, 69 ERA+, 1.602 WHIP) who was passed last night by Sabathia for most career innings pitched by an active player. According to the four letter,

Colon last pitched Friday during a 4-3 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. He allowed four runs and five hits in six innings. In his past three starts -- all defeats -- Colon owns a 7.53 ERA after going 4-1 with a 3.40 ERA in six August starts.

so we got that going for us ... which is nice.

Baseball's a funny game - anything can happen. That being said, I'm (unfortunately) with joe.

*he's only 23!!1!
