ole has been dealing the past few weeks, including 15 strikeouts against the Angels in a game the Yankees needed badly. Now they come home to face the Orioles, which has almost become automatic wins.

Are the guys good with Cole now after his terrific stretch? Do they feel less stressed with him pitching the one-game playoff?
- SEPTEMBER BASEBALL: Who should the Yankees add to the roster? What will Gleyber Torres’ role be when he returns this weekend? Should the Yankees be playing more small ball to win games?
