After tonights 2-1 victory over the O’s and a stunning sweep of the RedSox by the Jays, the NewYork Yankees pull within 1.5 games of the AL East. I for one have felt all season that clinching the AL East was a foregone conclusion. Of course the Yankees did all they could to try and make me doubt myself but alas I was steadfast. A friend of a friend of mine is a HUGE RedSox fan and has tried all season as well to sway me. He will read this post soon and feel shamed. While the season isn’t anywhere near over you gotta admit the Yanks are hitting it hard and coming up fast. Of course it always helps when the RedSox fall into their yearly post All-Star break slump :-D
