The Yankees just finished the easy part of their schedule and made up a ton of ground. This is the part that will either kill the Yankees or vault them into the playoffs. Starting tonight they have a stretch of games were they play 5/6 series against playoff contenders. They also play 8 games against Detroit the rest of the month. If they can take 5-6 of those games it will go a long way for their WC hopes. They also have a 3 game series against Boston coming up. If they can sweep and make the defecit 4 games or less going into September then they still have a shot at the division.
