Taking down the white flag
Back in May, I raised the white flag and surrendered as a Yankee fan. I have to take it back now.
With a win this afternoon, the Yankees are currently tied with Detroit for the wild card lead, one-half game ahead of Seattle. I don't think that the Yankees can catch the Red Sox for the Eastern Division, where they trail by 6.5 games. But, they obviously have a good shot at the playoffs.
Their bullpen, beyond Rivera, is shaky. But, their offense is unbelievable. Not many teams can slug their way through the playoffs successfully, but this team may be able to.
Back on the bandwagon!
