Yankees vs. Rays Matchups

With two weeks left in the 2010 baseball season, the Yankees and Rays meet for the final time with just a half-game separating the two for a four-game set in the Bronx.

To me these games are pretty damn important. Not only are they playing for the division, but homefield advantage as well (lead Twins by a game). But if you believe Brian Cashman, the Yankees main priority is staying/getting healthy, and not winning ballgames or the division. So I guess we shouldn't be too surprised if we see Lance Berkman batting 3rd in a couple of these games.

(Tampa has won 8 of the 14 games this year.)
