6-9 Means Little

So, do you look at things and say the Yankees have lost nine-of-fifteen to the Red Sox?  Or do you say they have won six-of-seven?  Aren’t stats great?

Here’s what I am willing to say on August 24th. The Yankees have a better chance of making the playoffs than the Red Sox right now.  In fact, they have a significantly better chance because even if they blow the division they could make it as the wild card, but beyond that who knows.  If these two teams meet in the ALCS I would flip a coin. 

That’s a topic for another day.  For now the Yankees passed another test and leave Boston with a 7-1/2 game lead.  38 games to go.
