This rollercoaster season now brings the New York Yankees to the final turn in what will determine if they make the playoffs.
The next 11 games include four at home this weekend against first place Boston Red Sox then three against the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards and the final three against the Red Sox at Fenway Park.
Realistically the Yankees cannot just tread water they need to win at least eight out of the next 12 games minimum to make that final push. Over their final 12 games nine of those games are against losing teams, so if they could do well against the Red Sox and Orioles they could secure a position at the end of the season.
Currently, New York is only two games out of a Wild Card berth behind the Tampa Bay Rays. Tampa has gone 3-7 over their last 10 games and is struggling at the wrong time. The Yankees do have three more against the Rays which may be huge depending on how the Yankees take care of business now.
The focus and task at hand is winning games though muc...
