TAMPA The Tampa Bay Rays have reason to feel optimistic about a rotation that now features a pair of heat-throwing lefthanders in David Price and Matt Moore.
But dont look now here come the New York Yankees, with their own matching set of stellar southpaws: All-Star ace CC Sabathia and newly unretired Andy Pettitte.
