You can’t say enough about that win this afternoon. The Yankees came out of the gate looking lifeless, but some (as in multiple) late-inning rallies resulted in the biggest and most important win of the season. It’s worth noting that the Yankees are now guaranteed to play no fewer than 163 games this year. Even if everything breaks wrong this week, worst case scenario is that they’re playing the Angels in a tie-breaker game to decide the second wildcard spot. Obviously no one wants it to come to that, but at least we know the season can’t come to an end on Wednesday.
Anyway, here is your open thread for the night. There is no ESPN Sunday Night Game, but the Angels and Rangers are playing Game Two of their doubleheader at 7pm ET (Santana vs. Holland). That game isn’t on national television (
as far as I know it’s on MLB Network), but it is worth following because the an Angels loss clinches a playoff spot for the Yankees. An Angels win moves the Yankees (and Orioles) in a tie with Texas for the best record in the AL. The late NFL game is the Bears and Cowboys Giants and Eagles. Talk about those games or anything else here, except for politics of course. Thanks in advance.
