......And the final weekend series becomes moot

Recommended Posts

Cleveland lost in extra innings tonite

Currently the Yanks and Bosox have idential records and both hold a one game lead over Clev with two games remaining

So the Yankees can actually win the A.L. East on Saturday with a Yankees win and a Cleveland loss

How so?

Well that would mean the worst the Yankees can do is end in a tie with Boston if the Sox win on Sunday, thus the Yankees would win the A.L. East by virtue of head-to-head

And because Boston wins on sunday they would maintain a one game lead over Cleveland, win the WC, and the Yankees would win the A.L. East by virtue of head-to-head

And of course if the Yankees also won on sunday they would win the A.L. East outright, leaving Boston and Clevelend to battle for the WC

Bottom Line: To make it easy, and this is a fact ... if the Yankees win on Saturday and the Indians lose, the Yankees win the A.L. East

There is NO SCENARIO that can offer a different result for the Yankees if they win on Saturday and Cleveland loses
