Not to be a negative nelly but remember the Indians and Rays are still going to be tough to beat out. Even maybe the A's. Remember 07 when the Sox were 10 up on the stankees and they swept the Sox to cut it to 6. it was mid to late August I believe. Sox still won the division but I think it was only 2 or 3 games. They barely hung on. I'm just saying the Yanks are 8 up now sort of like we were in 07. Hopefully we're in their heads. And believe me I'm enjoying this kick ass. 38 runs given up by their pitching, lol. Poor C.C.

And in the yankee forum they scolded me because I said they didn’t have an ace and would not be ready for the dog days of August and October; lol.
Gashouse Gorilla fans aren't really paying much attention to this series, they figure the division is already locked up, they're more interested in what happens at the trading deadline; you know, the time of year when they screw some team out of a top tier talent for next to nothing in return.

If the United States went to war with the gashouse gorilla starters in World War II, we'd all be speaking German.

the Indians' schedule gets much tougher for awhile after tomorrow.

HOU (3)
LAA (3)
TEX (3)
@MIN (4)
BOS (3, important head-to-head after blowing the series to them in late May)
@NYY (4)

They still have a head-to-head with TB in the Trop, and 6 interleague games without the DH for what is not that good an offense, although Jose Ramirez has returned to being elite. This analysis also ignores that hey, the Twins are only one game ahead of the Indians now.

the Astros have the most consistent high-end pitching and will probably waltz to around 100 wins again. but if the Yanks keep sliding down, the rest of the AL playoff teams could be all packed around 90-95 wins. the Yanks would have to go .500 the rest of the season to slide that far down, but it's definitely possible...

I'll be shocked in the Indians don't end up coasting to the Central division title. The Twins will be the WC competition.
