The Bombers will conclude this month with a series against the beleaguered Baltimore Orioles. As Larry noted in his series preview, the O’s haven’t played particularly well for the majority of this season, and have been especially ineffective of late. The Yankees, on the other hand, are currently 20 games over .500, have averaged 5.19 runs per game (AL average is 4.34 R/G), and have also enjoyed successful series against both the Althetics and the Mariners.
Also, in case you’re interested, Baseball Prospectus’ Playoff Odds Report has the Bombers chances listed at a gaudy 96.7%. Contemplating the postseason at this juncture may be a bit premature; still, you have to like those odds! Use this as your game thread for the evening.
