Yankees not ‘walking off’ into the abyss just yet

After three consecutive walk off hits in as many games, the Yankees find themselves back in the mix for the AL East, winners of 8 of their last 10, 5 games over .500 and only 3 ½ back. A combination of replacing an American iconic stadium, a superstar steroid scandal, and questionable starting pitching had pundits crossing out the pinstripes but the bomers are making believers of many outside of the Boston area. Now A-Rod has gone deep in 4 straight, CC was on the bump and got their 7th straight win and all is forgiven. However, north of the border Gaston and his gang continue to go about their business like it was 1995 all over again, 16-6 at home and 11-9 on the road, the Jays won’t be dismissed as an early season surprise as they continue to hang on to the American League’s best record, but their litmus test is coming early has they pay a visit to Fenway to battle the “Sox of Second Place” for a three-game stint. Then host the same Sox at the end of the month. Check back with us as Summer begins to see if the birds are still in the catbird seat. Who will be the first of the big 3 in the East to get some separation? Let us know here and in the team pages and chat rooms.
