Hughes continues his up and down season. Look at his earned runs per starts since July: 0, 1, 2, 1, 6, 6, 2. Considering Seattle is among the weakest offensive teams in baseball, I'm tentatively expecting a good outing. But either way, he looks destined for the playoff bullpen.
Felix continues his dominant ways, but is still toiling for a last place team. It's got to be frustrating for him. The M's are 21.5 games out of first place. Oof.
NYY: Jeter, Grandy, Tex (DH), Cano, Swish (1B), GGBG, Dickerson (RF), Romine (C)
