In the second game of this four-game set, we have the division champions and the relatively distant runner-up. But the pitching matchups don’t work that way as Ubaldo Jimenez (who has been a terrible free agent pickup) takes on McCarthy (who has probably earned another zero or so on the amount of his free agent deal in the time he has played with the Yankees). KC’s win yesterday lowered the Yankees’ tragic number to 3, but the 2009 Twins come to mind for guys who had no room to maneuver at the end and made it into October.
