The New York Yankees have a good record but are now fourth in the American League East and have been ruled out of the playoffs. Playing in baseball’s strongest division this year likely had some effect on why they fell short of preseason expectations. But they’ve been spoilers, and they could endanger Toronto’s playoff chances.
While the Yankees’ record is respectable by MLB standards, it isn’t good enough to challenge the division-leading Orioles and Rays. The Yankees were thought to be among the top contenders for the World Series early in the season.
Looking ahead to next year, they realize that they fell short due to injuries and high expectations. With a win on the road, New York will take a commanding 7-5 lead in the season series and have a real shot at ruining Toronto’s season.
The Toronto Blue Jays have slipped to third place in the American League East and are vying for the division’s last wild card slot. With only four games left in the season, they only need three more victories to clinch their spot. They need to win the rest of the games in this series to avoid falling further behind.
In order to guarantee a postseason berth, the Blue Jays will need to win three of their last four games. They’ve made it tough on themselves by dropping the last two games to New York and need to win the series to keep their playoff hopes alive.
Toronto has not scored a run in this series and is currently behind 0-11. They need to wake up at the plate and start putting the ball in play if they want to win this game. The Blue Jays need to get on the board quickly and put runners on base because we’ve seen the Yankees collapse before.
