You could conceivably have the Yankees and Red Sox opening champagne on Sunday. It’s an extreme longshot, but if the Yankees sweep and the Rangers get swept then Sunday you would have the Yankees as the AL East winners and the Red Sox as the wildcard winners.
It’s too bad the Texas game on Sunday starts so much later than the Yankees’ game because that would be a sight to see. Can you imagine it? Ortiz grounds out to Rvera to end the game and Rivera starts to jump in the air as the Yankees swarm out of the dugout. But, Ortiz doesn’t even get near first because he is mobbed by his teammates as they celebrate the wild card. Derek Jeter and Dustin Pedroia do a fist bump and champagne is everywhere.
