Nah I think Tampa Bay and Boston (as currently configured) are a step better this year.

A big trade or the second coming of Aaron Small could change this, but as they are now no play-offs for you.

I think so, but not because I think the Yanks are great but because I think Tampa will slip up. The Rays play a lot more games on the road from this point on and they've been terrible away from the Trop.

And looking at the teams already behind the Yankees, Oakland isn't playing for this year and is fading, I don't think the Twins are that good to be blunt. The Tigers scare me a bit, but it's not like they don't have major issues as well. Texas has no pitching.

Basically I think the Wild Card comes from the East and between the Red Sox, Yankees and Rays, Tampa is the most likely to play themselves out of the race IMO.

Yes, especially if they sign Bonds. But if they don't, they probably will anyway.

I say yes. Yanks starters have been pitching really well of late - I thought they were done without Wang.
