    The Yankees went 4-3 this week…which is not terrible.

    Don’t get me wrong, it’s not great. But, it’s not terrible.

    In any event, what stands out the most in my mind, this past week, is that the last game of this week was a loss, to the Mariners. And, with that loss, the Yankees have now dropped 5 of their last 9 games. During this time, they’ve gone from being 9 games ahead of second place Boston to being just 5 games ahead of the Red Sox.

    Actually, since September 4th, the Yankees are 9-7. But, that includes going 4-0 against the Tampa Bay Rays who were pretty bad when they played in New York. So, in their last 12 games where they played someone other than the Rays, the Yankees have gone 5-7. That’s not exactly sprinting for the finish line, is it?

      Well, if Mo doesn’t shit the bed, the Yanks go 5-2 this week.

      I think we all would feel better about 5-2, which they had in their grasps had it not been for the aforementioned bed shitting.

      The fact that the Red Sox are only 5 games back is worrisome. BUT what is even more worrisome is how hot Boston is right now. They seem truly unbeatable right now. And this hot streak has come at the right time of the year.It would give for Boston such an edge to get home field throughout the playoffs since they have the greatest home field advantage in baseball. Hopefully, things will change by the time the playoffs roll around………
