Yankees-Blue Jays Preview

(AP) -- The Toronto Blue Jays aren't going to walk away from August with many positives.

They can, however, add life to their receding playoff chances by completing the month with a strong series against the New York Yankees, one of the teams they're chasing for a spot in the postseason.

The first chance comes Friday night at home as Mark Buehrle tries to do away with a horrendous decade against New York.
