The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox are tied for first place in the A.L. East standings, at this moment, each with a record of 51-34.
This means that you can throw out everything that’s happened for the Yankees and Red Sox, so far this year, and that “their” season starts today with 77 games on the schedule.
Whoever wins the most of their 77 games will be the better of the “Boston vs. New York” match-up. (I suppose that some may want to include the Tampa Bay Rays here as well – and their remaining 76 games. However, I want them to tie the Yankees and/or Red Sox first before letting them into the party.)
So, which team will win this 77-game season, New York or Boston? Me? I think it’s going to be very close – with maybe one game making the difference. What do you think?
