The Red Sox have a magic number of two in the A.L. East. This pretty much means that the Yankees will be the Wildcard in the A.L. this season.
The Angels are three games behind the Indians in the loss column. This means that the Tribe now just needs one more win this season (in their remaining four games) to ensure that the Angels have the third-best record among the division winners.
And, once that happens, it means the Red Sox would face the Angels in the ALDS and the Yankees would take on the Indians.
Between facing the Angels and the Indians, I would take the Indians. So, this is a nice break for the Yankees – in terms of who they will face in the ALDS.
