I think last night's loss was the first time since June that the Yankee bullpen blew a lead and lost a game on the road. An amazing run.
I also think that Brian Bruney and Jeff Karstens won't be on the Yankee postseason roster next month. Just my guess.
With Wang, Joba, and Mo available tonight, I expect the Yankees to win and secure the Wild Card spot.
But in just 48 hours, we have seen the Yankees' chances of winning the AL East slip from 40%, to 19%, to 6%. All Boston has to do is win 3 more games out of the remaining 5, and the AL East is theirs, regardless of what the Yankees do.
And if they blow that, then yes, Joe Buck, Tim McCarver, John Sterling, Suzyn Waldman, and Michael Kay can mention it all they want. But if the Sox win the AL East, I don't want to hear about them blowing a 14-game lead ever again.
The Red Sox magic number is 3. When they wake-up Saturday morning, the AL East title should already be theirs.
