Blue Jays @ Yankees: The beginning of the end

Masahiro Tanaka takes on Toronto to open the final regular-season series of the year

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees pull a Wrigley Field today, with a Friday afternoon game. Maybe it'll throw off the Blue Jays' rhythm and the team will cruise to an easy win. Or, given New York's struggles with Toronto this season, maybe not.

Masahiro Tanaka takes the hill for what might be his last start as a Yankee, which is an ultra-depressing thought so I'm not going to ruminate on it for now. Joe Biagini counters for the Jays, a week after posting five innings and three earned runs against the Yankees.

First pitch is at 1:05pm EDT, on YES and WFAN.
