Two games left and nothing to play for. Stay healthy, get the starters some at bats, and get them out before something bad happens. 

Bartolo might be pitching for a chance at a postseason start, and this is clearly his last opportunity. With the way he has pitched down the stretch, and the likelihood of him being exhausted, my third and fourth starters are probably Garcia and Burnett at this point. Colon needs to throw well to put himself in the conversation. 

On the other side of the ball, rookie Jeremy Hellickson is making the biggest start of his career. A bad game from him could result in the Rays missing the playoffs.

As long as the starters stay healthy and get their reps, I could really care less about what happens with this game. 

Lineups:

Yankees - Nunez, Granderson, Cano, A-Rod, Tex, Swish, Posada, Martin, Gardner

Rays - Jennings, Upton, Longo, Joyce, Damon, Zobrist, Kotchman, Shoppach, Rodriguez
