A September to Remember for the Yankees

With two teams to leapfrog in order to have a shot at a Wild Card spot, at this point, it's hard to imagine the Yankees losing any games and still making the playoffs.

4 losses in the next 26 games will make the Yanks miss the 95 win mark for the first time since 2008.

If the Bombers take two out of three from the While Sox, split their 6 games with the Red Sox, go 2-2 in their remaining four games against the Orioles, and take 2 out of 3 from each of the Jays, Giants, Rays and Astros, that would only get the Yankees to 87 wins.

They probably can't slip ahead of the Rays and Orioles without sweeping both teams. That would get the Yankees to 90 wins.

The Yankees find themselves in the position of having to root for the Red Sox to win the division, because Boston plays 9 of their final 24 games against the Rays and Os.
