From all appearances the New York Yankees are back. The pinstripers assured their fans would be enjoying Yankees playoff tickets in 2009, clinching the first playoff spot of the season. Just to celebrate, they posted a 9-5 win over their arch rivals the Boston Red Sox yesterday.
New York is now only three games away from locking down their first AL East title in three years. For Yankees fans it’s been a long dry spell since they became used to that sort of thing during New Yorks reign over baseball in past years. With the Sox down seven games it’s not likely anything will interfere with the celebration. What the Yankees do once they reach the playoffs might be a whole nother story but for now everything is right in Yankeeland.Eric Drouant
