As a team, the Yankees have nothing left to play for — they simply seem to enjoy beating up on the Red Sox. Individually, A.J. Burnett and Jorge Posada are still trying for strong finishes to bad seasons, and in today’s 6-2 win against the Red Sox, Burnett pitched 7.2 terrific innings and Posada went 2-for-3 with a home run. Burnett left to a standing ovation, and Posada was brought out of the dugout for a curtain call. Derek Jeter had three hits in the win, which cut the Red Sox wild card lead to just one game over Tampa Bay, which is currently beating the Blue Jays in the eighth inning.
