Chien-Ming Wang,  RHP  (18-7,  3.82)


Yanks have won 12 of 14 and have gained 5.5 games on the Red Sox during that span.

How dominant has Roy Halladay been against the Yankees?

His lifetime numbers are 10-4, 3.10 ERA in 25 games.  Ironically, the Yanks haven't beaten him since Sept 21, 2004, which was 3 years ago today.  He's 4-0, 1.90 ERA in his last 7 starts against them since his last defeat.

Wang had been undefeated against the Blue Jays prior to this season (3-0, 2.89 in 4 starts), but he has been shelled in 2 starts against them in 2007 (0-2, 9.90 ERA).

Update [2007-9-21 17:26:5 by anaconda]:


Ed Price is reporting that Ian Kennedy will be scratched from Saturday’s scheduled start due to a "muscle strain in his upper back."  Well, that sucks.

Since the team had been using a six-man rotation anyways, the others will simply move up a day.
