|2010 - Javier Vazquez||6-7||15||14||0||0||0||0||81.0||72||46||46||15||34||71||5.11||1.31|

Sheets has faced the Yanks just twice in his career - once in 2005 and once in April of this year when he allowed two runs in six innings. Overall though, he's had a mighty disappointing year. His ERA (4.98), WHIP (1.47) and walk rates (3.6/9) are all career highs.
We'll see if the Yankee lineup can produce without the aid of the sun, which by some estimates, drove in five runs in the Toronto series.
An overflow thread will post at 11:30 p.m. EST.
