Yes, yes I do hear eight. Eight wins in a row is a new season high, and all it took was a little Marcus Thames elbow grease to make it happen. The Yanks are now a whopping 36 games over .500 with a +187 run differential, both representing the best marks in the game. I approve.
Here’s tonight’s open thread. Depending on where you live, you’ll get either the White Sox-Red Sox or Braves-Marlins on MLB Network, plus there’s more college football than I care to recap on as well. With a little help from the ChiSox, the magic number will creep down to 17 tonight. That would be a productive Saturday. You guys know what to do, so have at it.
