Tampa Bay keeps winning

So the Yankees are 13-1 in the past 14 games and they lose a game in the lost column to Tampa.  It is tooooo bad the Yankees are finished playing Tampa.  Now we have to count on other teams.  Yankees still have 3 with Boston and 7 with Toronto.



Tampa has 7 against the RS, 3 with Toronto and 3 with Houston.  Maybe they have the tougher schedule?  


Either way, the Yankees need to go on another long win streak !!!

Yankees end their season with 3 games against the Ray's at the Stadium

Tampa should send MLB a thank you card for gifting them the Orioles for 10 games in August. Then they should put the Orioles, Indians, and Angels on their thank you card list for rolling over to them this year.


Vs Tampa Bay, the AAA Orioles are a shameful 1-18, the Indians 1-6, and the Angels 1-6, for a combined 30-3 record. The Rays have built their record and lead off those 3 teams, especially Baltimore, which is a historically bad team this year.


Hopefully, in the 6 games they have left with Baltimore, the Yankees can feast on them to that degree.

while we've been going 13-1, rays are almost as hot. tough to make up ground like that. have to hope they cool and while i don't expect another 13 game win streak any time soon, just hoping we keep playing well. would say our schedules are about equal and the final 3 at the stadium could be for all the marbles.

Tampa is definitely a problem... I'm rooting like hell for the Red Sox as I see they may be our only hope to gain some ground on the Rays. Maybe Astro's can cheat/beat the Rays a couple games, but I ain't rooting for them.
Yanks/Rays series at the end of the season could be epic!

My bad about not playing Tampa.  I thought the season ended at the end of September.  Didn't even look at October

They're a very sound team, they beat the teams they should beat... They've had a very soft schedule as of late, it gets tougher, we'll see how they do against RS, Jays, and Astro's... 18-1 against the O's, not sure exactly what our record is against the O's, but I can remember losing several games against them that we should have won... There lies the difference...

tampa is 34 games over .500. 17 courtesy of the orioles. by contrast, we're only 8-5. we've got 6 left, need to sweep them.

Yanks need only concern themselves with making the playoffs.
