The MLB Network’s Mitch “Wild Thing” Williams joined the [Dan Patrick Show] to talk about Stephen Strasburg’s injury and more.
Dan asked Williams his favorite in the AL East. Williams will go with Tampa, because of all the arms the Rays have. And he thinks the Yankees won’t even make the playoffs. “Boston has more pitching. Tampa has more pitching. And everyone knows in September and October, pitching wins,” Williams said.
Well, the Red Sox do play the Yankees 6 times within their final 10 games. But, in order to cash in on those, the would have to get within 4 games of New York over the next 3 weeks. Can they do that? A lot, I suppose, depends on how the Yankees play over their next 20 or so games too.
