Don’t look now, but the Yankees are sneaking up the Wild Card standings.
It looks like this one may get interesting after all.
By winning 11 of their last 16 games, including key games against Baltimore, Cleveland and, most recently, Houston, the Yankees have put themselves back into striking distance of both American League Wild Card teams.
The Yankees currently have 10 games remaining against both the Red Sox and Blue Jays, mostly in the final weeks of the season, so mathematically, it’s well within reason. However, the Yankees will need to decide soon if they can add to a putrid offense, or throw up the white flag and try to come back strong next season.
