You guys should be alright as long as your bats don't snooze.
I know what you're trying to say about Porcello. But truthfully, against the Yankees, there really isn't an in between. You kind of need a pitcher to be that type of a starter. He needs to have the ability to be lights out. If Jekyl shows up it won't matter anyway because the game will probably be lost.
