mainstreet62: The rest of August they're playing all AL East teams (16 games), and in September they're playing 18 out of 27 games against the AL East.

That's actually helpful.  The Yankees have to go on a tear to get in.... they have to leapfrog over 4 teams just to get the second wild card.  They can't play .550 ball and hope all of those teams (and/or the division leaders) crap out and play .200 ball.

And if they're going to go on a tear, having a bunch of games vs. the Rays and Orioles means they can simultaneously knock them down as they climb up.

That all said, as fun is it is to watch the Yankees repeatedly resurrect the husks of players you thought retired in 2011, they're going nowhere.  This is still a team with Lyle Overbay, Chris Stewart, and Eduardo Nunez in the everyday lineup.  MLB is looking to re-suspend A-Rod ASAP, and the Yankees' other 3B options are truly grim.  No one knows if Jeter can step on the field for more than a game or two at a time.  Wells, Nix, and Adams keep sneaking into games, apparently with the manager's permission.  Alfonso Soriano is very likely to turn back into Alfonso Soriano.  Etc.

largedon: Amazing what leaving the Cubs can do for a person. Moving to a stadium where the power alleys are 355'

idesofmarch: Not to be a broken record, but I really want Mo to finish his career on a highest note possible: retiring the final batter in a World Series-clinching game.  And I also want Ichiro to finally get a ring.  If that means putting up with A-Rod for a couple months, I can live with it.

It doesn't just mean "putting up" with A-Rod for a couple months, it means hearing (correctly, IMO) that the 2013 World Series is tainted and undeserved.  I would take absolutely no joy whatsoever out of it for that reason.
