Since the All Star Break the Yankees are 17-8(.680), the Rays are 16-8(667), and the Blue Jays are 17-9(.680). The Red Sox are 11-14(.440). We have had a bad stretch while all our rivals are surging but we are still in the lead for the WC. Sure, if all three of those teams keep winning games at a pace that would be significantly better than how the Giants have played all year and we keep winning games at a pace like the Rockies we are screwed. With Sale and Houck returning and Schwarber on the way, I don't see that as particularly likely. We have had a bad stretch. We haven't all of a sudden become the 8th worst team in baseball. This team will start winning more games. The Yankees offense still sucks.
