I don't know, I like having Bartolo start against the Yankees.
He's a magician and a freak, and he might just muster a good outing.
That's must see baseball, IMHO
And for the pure rebuilders, I always remember the Twins, when competitive having an old someone or other that starts big games in August and September.
Didn't always work out, but still, it's okay to throw a veteran out there and hope.
There's "veteran" and there is "washed up". One is useful. One is not.
