I hate to keep ragging on our manager, as I do think he’s done a fantastic job this year. Unfortunately, these last two games haven’t exactly inspired a ton of confidence despite both surprisingly resulting in victories, mostly in spite of the managerial decisions that were made.
The Yankees took their first series from the Angels at Anaheim since May 2004. The team had obviously had its struggles at the Big A, but I had no idea it had been more than five years since taking two of three as a visitor.
Even if the Red Sox win again tonight (which seems like a foregone conclusion — what are the chances the Royals can take 3 of four?), they’ll come to Yankee Stadium 5.5 games out of first. In the worst-case scenario, Boston could exit the weekend’s series 2.5 games out, but that’s still a lot of ground to cover with the Yankees only having 6 games remaining after Sunday night.
I don’t want to say it’s a lock, but the AL East crown is within our sights. If the Royals can miraculously beat Boston tonight, and the Yankees win on Friday, I will be at Saturday afternoon’s game with CC Sabathia on the hill and a chance to see the Yankees clinch the AL East and home field in person.
Let’s go Ro-yals!
