In addition to rooting for the Yankees and the Blue Jays this week, Yankees fans should do the following:
1. Root for the Devil Rays to take 2 of 3 from the Indians this week.
2. Root for the White Sox and the Tigers to split their four games this week.
3. Root for the Indians to win on September 30th – but, for the White Sox to win on October 1st and 2nd.
This will leave the Indians with just the Wild Card as an option – and with 94 wins on the season.
Hey, it never hurts to have a safety net.
