The Yankees are making the move because the Red Sox suddenly have a shot to make the final week of the season very interesting if they can win on Sunday. The Yankees, losers of 13 of their last 19, have a magic number of three to clinch the wild card. If they were to win on Sunday night, the Yankees would basically end the Red Sox's chances.
Well there goes the idea of resting starters in preparation for the playoffs. Things are not looking good for the Yankees.
