I haven’t wanted to even mention it because I don’t want to jinx the choke, but the Yankees are looking like they’re in serious trouble.
Now just 1 game ahead of Baltimore (!) the Yankees are in danger of slipping out of first after they built a 10 game lead.
And if the O’s edge them out in the East there’s no guarantee they qualify for a Wild Card either. The newly added second WC team may help them squeak in the postseason but that’s a 1 game playoff and they may not even finish top 2 in the WC.
Man how sweet would it be to watch the yanks and their fans crash and burn over the next 4 weeks.
I know I’m a petty Met fan but that sure would make me feel better after the season we’ve had.
