This morning, for the first time all season, I clicked on “Expanded Standings” at the Yankees web site to see where they are in the Wild Card race. I don’t see it happening for them to win the AL East, where they are now six games back. But only one game in the Wild Card. Actually, I don’t see it happening there either, and if it did, how long would these Yanks last in the playoffs?
You can say that last night’s game, a 4-3 loss in the 12th against the Tigers, was a great effort, especially since David Price was Detroit’s starter. But great efforts don’t count, only W’s and L’s, and it was another L.
