Here's the New York Yankees' problem, and it goes well beyond the threat posed by the run differential-defying Baltimore Orioles and the dollar-defying Tampa Bay Rays.
If the Yankees fail to reach the postseason, it could wreck The Plan.

Last night, New York Yankees’ all-world second baseman, Robinson Cano, ranged to his left on a Chris Gimenez ground ball in the eighth inning, but stepped awkwardly and failed to snare it. On the play, the eventual winning run scored, and Tampa cut the Yankee lead to one game.
Today around noon, I came across an article by John Harper, longtime columnist for the New York Daily...
