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.
