      Magic number to clinch a playoff spot...2...magic number to clinch east 5.

      Yankee win today and Texas win over LAA today gets the Yankees in.

      Todays game

      Andy Pettitte 2.70 era has not given up a run since coming off DL

      Ricky Romero 5.80 era

      last 3 starts against Yankees this year.

      7 innings 3 runs
      7 innings 2 runs
      7 innings 1 run

      How Ricky stacks up against the AL East

      Vs
      Boston 7.15 ERA
      Baltimore 6.55
      Tampa 9.69

      New York 4.15

      The only other 2 teams Ricky has a era under 5.15 against out of the 16 teams he faced are the Indians and Seattle.

      Sadly this game could be close

      Another pathetic performance against a last place team no less. No homers no wins. So far they have dropped 2-3 to the awfully jays while they themselves fight for their playoffs lives. 2-18 with risp combine in their losses.

      There is a third possible scenario, of course...unlikely given the match-ups...but possible.

      In the last 5 years I think they have taken the east twice and missed the postseason all together once

      Yankees have the highest % chance of making postseason in the AL according to ESPN.

      The only way I think the Yankees can miss the postseason is if they get swept by the Sox and LAA wins tonight [they are losing] and then sweeps the M's.

      If that Happens the Yanks and LAA would be tied, and if it means anything we are 5-4 against them but I am not sure they use that as a tie breaker with the new system.

      So I want to say if LAA loses tonight we clinch.

      Edit that's 17 times in 18 seasons. I know u don't like to bring up the past(only when it suits your argument )

      But that's damn good and should be recognized as a monumental achievement in all of sports. It shows the dedication of the Yankees organization. And as Boston has shown this year money isn't everything

      Yup. Worst case scenario they have a 1 game playoff started by I think Andy or cc on short rest. Best of 1 sucks


      In baseball that is

      This really has been one of the craziest seasons I can remember. I forget the stat, but Im not sure in the teams history if they've ever been tied or +1 for this long, this late in the season. Its pretty remarkable. I reallly really hope they take care of business and win the east. Texiera will be back in the lineup today... so hopefully he can knock the rust off quickly.

      Heres how the final three stack up for the Yanks and the Os...

      Yanks VS Sox at Yankee Stadum
      Monday Oct 1 7:05PM: Sabathia (14-6, 3.42) VS Bucholz (11-7, 4.22)
      Tuesday Oct 2 7:05PM: Nova (12-8, 5.02) VS Lester (9-14, 4.94) - This game worries me
      Wednesday Oct 3 7:05PM: Kuroda (15-11, 3.34) VS Matsuzaka (1-6, 7.68)

      Os VS Rays at Tropicana Field
      Monday Oct 1 7:05PM: Chen (12-10, 4.11) VS Cobb (10-9, 4.18)
      Tuesday Oct 2 7:05PM: Gonzales (8-4, 3.45) VS Shields (15-9, 3.62)
      Wednesday Oct 3 7:05PM: Tilman (9-2, 2.78) VS Hellickson (9-11, 3.20)

      They're gonna need Nova on a really short leash in that game IMHO. The only thing we have going for us is that the Os are in the road and the Rays arent a bad team. ...though, they wont see Price, unfortunately.

      This is going to be a pretty crazy couple of days of baseball.

      Lets look ahead for a second, and Imagine they either win the 1 game WC or the division.

      Do they use a 3 man rotation?

      CC
      Andy
      Kuroda

      Hughes is having his 2nd worse month of the year and Nova, well you know whats going on there. So Unless Nova throws a no hitter or something what would you do?

      No Pedroia and no Ellsbury tonight... as to the question. From a fan's POV, I run out my three best guys in the first round no doubt. Hughes IS NOT A STUD PITCHER! ...and he's worse in the playoffs. I take my best three and take my chances with short rest, etc. Though, I dont think that's what Girardi will do. I have no doubt that they'll go four man with Hughes in it.

      I figured they would do that which works out great for the yanks. We need a sweep

      Draft pick talk in baseball makes me giggle.



      At any rate this is what they need to do the next 2 days. Crush this pathetic sox team.

      If they win out they are at worse the 2 seed so no 1 game WC playoff

      Bingo. They control their own destiny. Lets hope they take care of business. Bats woke up in a big way last night. Good to see Tex out there again. His offense (and maybe as important, defense) have been missed. CC pitched well.

      Nova tonight... in what is, IMHO, the biggest game he's pitched in his career. Every day is a playoff game.

      Let go Yankees
