Three days ago, I warned about this happening. And, this morning, I shared how important it was for the Yankees to win today. But, they lost – yet again. Make it eight of their last ten, now, that New York has dropped. And, at this moment, the A.L. Wildcard standings are:
W L PCT GB Yankees 88 58 .603 - Red Sox 82 64 .562 6
Yup, it’s a six game difference between the two teams with 16 games to be played – including six head-to-head match-ups between New York and Boston. Oh, and, by the way, the Yankees also have to play the Rays four times, too, in those 16 games.
Man, ten days ago, the Red Sox looked like toast. Heck, the Red Sox appeared dead back on August 24th.
But, those stupid ef’n blankety-blank Yankees have opened the door and let the Red Sox back into this thing. Criminy!
Damn, I just want to kick something now. Thanks Yanks. Thanks a lot.
