Hello… And Don’t Sweat the Division

Good morning Yankees family and welcome back to the blog, finally. Work has been insanely busy, but I have just one more week of training before I think I can call things back to “normal” around here, which in turn should return things back to normal here on the blog.

It seems like I missed a lot, some of it I hate to miss and some of it I am entirely okay with (the sweep at the hands of the Red Sox for instance), but at the end of the day I have come to one conclusion and one conclusion only. I am not going to sweat the division, and I’m not going to for a couple of reasons. One, the Yankees didn’t win the division last year and they, not the Red Sox, were one game from the World Series. Two, until someone a lot better at math tells me the Yankees don’t have a mathematical chance at winning the division… I still believe.

Including last night, the Yankees next 21 of 24 games are against teams with records under .500 with the three games not against teams under .500 with the Tampa Bay Rays who are hovering right at .500, which on paper should give the team a great chance at winning the vast majority of those. With the impending returns of Gary Sanchez and Aaron Judge for the stretch run as well as JA Happ coming off the disabled list to make his second start in Yankees pinstripes last night, I have to say I am confident that the team will at least not go down quietly and without a fight. It’s not over until we say it’s over, and even if it is… this team is built to win a one-game playoff series with Luis Severino on the mound, this offense, and that bullpen. Color me not worried.

And baby, it has been far too long since I have been able to scream to the masses my absolute adoration and love for you. I love you and you are my soulmate, I truly believe that. Stay well and stay mine.
