What a series that was. The Yankees stomped the team trying to chase them down for the first wildcard spot and now have a seven-game lead over the Twins for homefield advantage in that Wild Card Game with ten games to play. I really hope this series was a Wild Card Game preview. Well, I hope the Yankees win the division, but if not, playing the Twins in the Wild Card Game ain’t too bad. Anyway, make sure you check out Jeff Sullivan’s piece on Luis Severino. He’s pretty awesome, today’s outing notwithstanding.
Here is an open thread for the night. ESPN will have games at 7pm ET (Red Sox vs. Orioles) and 10pm ET (Indians vs. Angels), both of which are relevant to the Yankees. They’re chasing the Red Sox, and an Angels loss means the magic number goes down again. Also, preseason hockey! Rangers vs. Devils tonight. I’ve been going through hockey withdrawals here. Talk about those games or anything else, as long as it’s not politics or religion. Thanks in advance.
