…and only 2.5 games in front of the Yankees. I guess I shouldn’t mind — a wild card spot is a virtual guarantee.
And I suppose it is more important to have a healthy, well-rested team for the playoffs than it is to force players to play hurt or pushing pitchers (starters, closer) too hard in an all-out attempt to win the AL East.
Nevertheless, it’s frustrating to see our 10 game advantage (from a few weeks ago) dwindle away so slowly.
That said, I’ll settle for 5 out of the last 10. Just so I know we haven’t lost our edge entirely.
