New York Yankees
Tampa Bay lost on Monday, which means New York will open this series with a full ten-game lead in the AL East.
JA Happ has taken a lot of criticism this season, perhaps more than he should. He’s stayed healthy and made 24 starts; he’s eaten up 125 innings; and he’s won 10 games. That isn’t to say he’s been good, though.
What he shows down the stretch will determine his role in the postseason. Don’t rule this guy out because he can locate, make the ball move, and has experience pitching in big games. A good September into a pleasantly surprising October wouldn’t shock me.
Happ came over just before the Trade Deadline in 2018. Mike Fiers arrive in Oakland just after it.
He pitched tremendously down the stretch but didn’t get a chance in the Wild Card Game against the Yankees. Instead, Bob Melvin went with Liam Hendriks, who surrendered a lead the A’s could never make go away.
I’m not sure Melvin will make the same mistake this time around. Fiers gave up five runs once in April and six runs three times. Since then, he’s made 20 starts and he’s given up more than three only once. It was in his last outing, against the Astros, in a game Oakland won.

Free New York Yankees vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction: under.
I’m betting on Happ turning some heads down the stretch. Matched up against Fiers, this could be a nice chance to start.
