Rays Yankees Baseball

The Yankees have a half game lead in the American League East, but they don’t exactly hold their own destiny. If the Yankees win out and the Rays win out, the teams will finish with the exact same record. The Rays won the head-to-head series.

“It’s over with. It is what it is,” Joba Chamberlain said. “We don’t see them again, and we have to focus on Boston. They’re a tough ball club. We still have nine tough games left. We can’t worry about what happened here.”

The schedules are not remotely even the rest of the way.

Sept. 24-26: Three games vs. Boston
Third place in the AL East, 84-68
Sept. 27-29: Three games at Toronto
Fourth place in the AL East, 77-75

Oct. 1-3: Three games at Boston
Third place in the AL East, 84-68

Sept. 24-26: Three games vs. Seattle
Last place in the AL West, 58-94
Sept. 27-29: Three games vs. Baltimore
Last place in the AL East, 61-91
Sept. 30 – Oct. 3: Four games at Kansas City
Fifth place in the AL Central, 63-89

“We have to worry about ourselves,” Mark Teixeira said. “If we’re going to get to the promised land and win another championship, we have to beat the best. If we’re going to complain about having a tougher schedule, we don’t belong in the playoffs anyway. It’s going to be a tough road, but when we get to the playoffs it’s going to be the same thing, so maybe it’s better that we’re going to get tested these last nine games.”
