What's not to love about Jo-Jo Reyes? He has a 1.64 career WHIP, 1.5 for the season. You can make Beatles jokes. He continues the long tradition of millionaire baseball players growing facial hair to look like frat boys.

But he's never faced the Yankees before, and he's left handed. Pencil in the 7.2 innings of shutout ball on your scorecard and fast forward to the bottom of the ninth.

The Blue Jays, on the other hand, have battered Freddy Garcia over his career. They're hitting .299/.376/.519 as a team against Garcia. In 15 career starts, he's only lasted 82.2 innings.
