The Playoff Matchup?
Tonight we begin a a 6-game stretch against two potential playoff opponents, the Rangers and the Rays. The good news is that we'll see how this team matches up against legitimate contenders. The bad news is that we'll see how this team matches up against legitimate contenders. After dropping the first two games against the Orioles I lost a little bit of confidence in the Yankees. But starting tonight they could either regain their swagger, or go the way of the '97 Yankees, a good team that just wasn't great. In the American League there are only two teams we have losing records against, Toronto and Tampa. I'm much more afraid of Tampa than I am of Texas, but given how good they've played we're bound to see Tampa in the playoffs at some point or another. Toronto's not in the picture, and the Yankees always have that one team that seems to drill us in the regular season. That's Toronto. So here's to these two series. I think we're going to see the character of this team over the next 6 games. What do you think we'll see?
