Why tonight's game is so important

New, 32 comments

If the Yankees win tonight, it will allow CC Sabathia to pitch game one of the World Series, game four (on short rest), and game seven (on normal rest). If the Yankees lose, CC will pitch tomorrow, and would only be able to pitch twice in the Series. In addition, they would need a fourth starter (probably Chad Gaudin).

The situation may also be FUBAR if tonight's game is rained out, where Sabathia (unless Joe changes it up) wouldn't pitch until Monday (and the World Series starts Wednesday).
