Yankees vs. Red Sox: CC Sabathia vs. Eduardo Rodriguez

The Yankees' best, and perhaps last, chance for the AL East starts tonight.

Gregory J. Fisher-USA TODAY Sports

If the Yankees want to win the AL East, they have to start this weekend. It's their final regular season series against the Red Sox, and they find themselves in a precarious position with multiple Wild Card teams on their heels. Winning the AL East can't happen this weekend, but one of these two teams will emerge feeling pretty good about their chances. If the Yankees come out on the wrong end of it, they'll likely need to turn their eyes toward holding on to a Wild Card spot.
