These are the current American League Wild Card standings. The Yankees now sit two games behind the Tampa Bay Rays. The Rays have played poorly of late, dropping 7 of their last 10 games. This is exactly the time for the Yankees to make a move and play catch-up. They’ve got these next two games against the Orioles and then a big three-game series against the Boston Red Sox. At this point in the season, every head-to-head game is crucial. They can’t really afford to lose many more games to the Orioles or Rays with only 17 games left to play in the regular season. If I were a betting man, I wouldn’t say the Yankees have a great chance at making the playoffs..but it’s definitely doable.

With 34 games left to play, the Yankees and Rays are tied for first place. The Red Sox stand 4.5 GB, and have played one more game than both Tampa and New York. Some will say the Sox are already out, while other fans think you can’t say that until they are mathematically eliminated. The Blue Jays and Orioles are already out of the race.

With a few weeks left in the season, the race is tightening and it should make for an exciting finish. I don’t think there’s a debate on whether the Yankees are making the postseason, but rather how they will get in. Will they take the East or Wild Card?
