36 games remaining

With 36 games remaining, the Yankees are six games behind Boston in the AL East and 2.5 games behind Seattle in the Wild Card.

All is not lost, however.

The Yankees have six games remaining with Boston. The three home games will be played August 28-30 and the three road games will be played September 14-16. They also have three home games remaining against Seattle in September (3-5).

I have been overtly negative this season, and I'm still not totally convinced that the Yankees can make the playoffs, but anything can happen when they play the teams directly in front of them in the standings.

The Yankees had nice series against Cleveland and Detroit, but they are still struggling to beat Los Angeles. After tonight's final game against Los Angeles, they travel to Detroit for four games before returning home for Boston. The reason the Yankees are 14 games above .500 is because of the stretch of 28 games against teams under .500. It is time to beat good teams in the American League to prove that the Yankees are not just bullies.
