Not a Yankee-killer...yet

Could tonight's Diamondbacks starter, Rodrigo Lopez, be the next pitcher to stymie the Yankees in the postseason?

Check out this funky stat: Lopez ranks as having the fifth-highest ERA against the Yankees, among the 177 pitchers whose careers have started in the last 50 years.

But check out the other names with whom Lopez has company. Three of the four others -- Josh Beckett, Derek Lowe , and Kenny Rogers -- all share the distinction of having shut the Yankees down in a noteworthy posteason performance (Beckett and Lowe for the Red Sox, Rogers for the Tigers).

So if Lopez gets traded to a contending team, the Yankees might want to be a little wary.
