Yankees May be Playing it a Little Close
With how terribly the Red Sox were playing in August, and early September, I sort of assumed that the Yankees would coast into a division title with ease. But after a recent surge from the Red Sox, the Yankees stand 5 games ahead with the Angels and Red Sox making up our next six road games. The Yankees are a lock for the post season, but all of a sudden the division race doesn't seem so finished. It would require quite the collapse from the Yankees for them to lose the division, especially with a magic number of 9, but the Yankees have a lot to prove this week. We're facing two contenders, and one of them will be our ALCS opponents. Combine that with the fact that our 4 and 5 guys look really bad, and the Yankees could be playing it close.
