    can't forget this point. we're not playing well but the Rays are a borderline playoff team, as they always are.

    we're 11-7 against them now this season... 11-12 wins out of 19 is good against this team. just ask the Yankees

    If the Yankees had lost two extra inning games they should’ve against teams that are actively tanking, this supposed hot streak of theirs would be 12-7. And this is who people are afraid of.

    The max lead has been cut by a third to 7. We have 31 left, they have 33. Six games remain between the two teams, so it’s game on.

    We have a decided edge, but it’s close. Before, it wasn’t close.

    Why? Inevitable reversion; the schedule turn (which people have been concerned about all year) and our ace on the DL.

    the Yanks are going to win between 97-103 games. my slight concern is we start really sucking and get close to that 103 level (would be a 13-18 finsh at this point for 103).

    At 75, I'd take him over the flotsam and jetsam in the Red Sox bullpen.

    Fangraphs and 538 still both have them at 109 wins. NY 102. 109 seems a little too optimistic given the schedule.

    So what you’re saying is we still have a very good shot at the division even if we completely shit the bed down the stretch.
