The Yankees have not played in the last two days, yet, thanks to the Boston Red Sox poor play, New York was able to register two more clicks (during the last two days) off their magic number for the 2006 A.L. East crown.
Before the start of today’s games, the Yankees now have 33 games left to play, and their “magic number” to win the A.L. East is down to 25.
It’s amazing – less than 23 months ago, the Red Sox could do no wrong, and, now, Boston is a mess.
At this rate, the Yankees might be able to clinch this thing when Boston comes into New York on September 15th.
