Yankees Sweep: What next?

Yanks complete sweep – what next?

ny-yankees-logo-smIf you weren’t in a coma this weekend, you surely know the NY Yankees completed a crushing four-game sweep of their hated rival Boston Red Sox. Whoo Hoo!

With a shade over 50 games left in the regular season – how do you think the American League will shape up?

Can they Yankees hold on for another AL Pennant? Who will make the Wild Card?

Both the Red Sox and Yankees play 10 different opponents for the remainder of the season, with six of the 10 having winning percentages. The Yanks have 53 games left (25 home, 28 away) and the Sox have 52 games left (29 home, 23 away). Do you think the number of home games will affect anything?

Big weekend series for Yankees fans!

Even though the New York Yankees are currently sitting on top of the American League East (as well as the best AL record) – and sport the second best record in all of baseball (0.5 behind the Dodgers) – at least one team has held them back from even greater dominance. That’s the Boston Red Sox, who’ve beat the Yanks in all eight games they’ve played in 2009. Even if New York had just split the games with them – they’d be 31 games above .500 and 6 1/2 10.5 games ahead!
