Let's get this out of the way

We've got some fouls to give... That's why you build up such a big lead in the first place...

I'm EXTREMELY Biased, but here's how I REALISTICALLY see it going down...

In the next month, The Yankees play:

- Toronto 11-Times (Conservatively, the Yanks should go: 7-4)
- Baltimore 6-times (Conservatively, the Yanks should go: 4-2)
- Cleveland 6-Times (Conservatively, the Yanks should go: 4-2)
- Tampa 4-times (Conservatively, the Yanks should go: 3-1)
- KC 3-Times (Conservatively, the Yanks should go: 2-1)

(Conservatively, the Yanks should go: 20-10 with the above teams - All have losing records)

- Boston 6-Times (Conservatively, the Yanks could go: 2-4)
- Minnesota 3-Times (Conservatively, the Yanks could go: 1-2) AL Central Leader - 7 game lead as of today.

(Conservatively, the Yanks could go: 3-6 with the above teams)

Overall "ultra-conservative" record for the next month's games: 23-16

_________________________


In the next month, The Red Sox play a much tougher schedule):

- Anaheim 3-Times (liberally, the Sox could go: 2-1) - Head-to-head Wild Card contender
- Texas 3-Times (liberally, the Sox could go: 2-1) - Head-to-head Wild Card contender
- Oakland 3-Times (liberally, the Sox could go: 2-1) - Head-to-head Wild Card contender
- Yankees 6-Times (liberally, the Sox could go: 4-2) - AL East Leader
- Baltimore 8-Times (liberally, the Sox could go: 5-3)
- Toronto 3-Times (liberally, the Sox could go: 2-1)
- Detroit 4-Times (liberally, the Sox could go: 3-1)
- Seattle 4-Times (liberally, the Sox could go: 3-1)
- Tampa 6-Times (liberally, the Sox could go: 5-1)

Overall "liberal" record for the next month's games: 28-12 (Red Sox winning EVERY series!)

__________________________

Even with that great Red Sox finish, the Yanks would win AL East by 2 games...

Yankees: 100-62 (Win AL East)
Red Sox: 98-64 (Challenge for Wild Card)


Of course there's "wiggle-room" either way... We'll see!
If a man dwells on the past, then he robs the present.
But if a man ignores the past, he may rob the future.
The seeds of our destiny are nurtured by the roots of our past.

I think your numbers are pretty acurate RMEEISG. The Yanks schedule is just too soft for the Sox to catch them.
Don't try to strike everyone out. Strikeouts are boring besides that they're fascist. Throw some ground balls it's more democratic. - Crash Davis

yep. couldn't agree more.

but we'll see how long they survive in the playoffs after that... i really think it's all up to who get hot right into the postseason. sure the pitching for the yanks is in shambles right now, and boston is really kicking it into high gear, but that can change very quickly with the caliber of the yanks pitching staff.
