Despite losing 6 of their last 10 games, the Yankees still hold a half game lead in the AL East. With 13 games left, there are essentially 6 teams fighting for 4 spots. Boston and Chicago are on the outside, looking in. They essentially need a miracle.
But, with how badly the Yankees have played on the road this year, our biggest challenge now is locking up home field advantage.
The Yankees kick off a 4-game series against the Rays in the Bronx on Monday. Since the Rays have a pretty easy schedule after this, this series will most likely decide who gets the pivotal game 7 (or game 5) in their home stadium.
