This is fine.  Anyone but the Dodgers.

Naah, I'd prefer if the Yanks broke season records and Boston still beat them in the wild card.

The Orioles are also on a rather impressive streak.

Hey 'member when certain Farkers were dumping on the Yanks in the spring?  Don't see those jabrones on right now.

Was at the game last night btw. Usually the crowd is about 70% Yankees when they come to town but was only about 20% last night.

Was my first trip to Truist Park, and I gotta say, I miss The Ted. Sure the immediate surrounding area is purpose-built artificially nice enough, but the traffic and parking situation is -atrocious-. I have never had a worse parking experience at any sporting venue I've been to, and I've been to quite plenty.

They also still do the tomahawk chop. They don't pipe in the chant anymore, but the crowd is more than happy to oblige when prompted and even without.

The chop is racist and the Braves built their team through human trafficking. A court should toss Albies' contract as unconscionable.

They won despite 'ol sweaty's continued choking.

he's ulcer-inducing on TV and even worse in person. When you're not in the comfort of your own home, you quickly realize how he takes farkING FOREVER between pitches.

They're playing October baseball in August...which is not terrible if you're clawing for a playoff spot.

Will they have anything left in the tank for October? We'll see.

..but yes, I do remember the breathless Fark headlines from April (we even had three of them in one day) about the Yankees' woes.

If the Yankees can come out of this upcoming series with the A's as winners, they'll pretty much be assured a wild card spot barring an Oriolesque collapse.

I'd even be cautiously optimistic about division chances if not for the fact that the Rays are ALSO on a tear, and I don't really see the Yanks catching them.

At least they won't have to face their nemesis, the Twins, in the playoffs.

I remarked to my friend after last night's win that the last time the Yankees lost a game while I was in attendance was also the last time the Twins won a playoff game.

Game 1 of the 2004 ALDS.
