Robby Cano and Curtis Granderson each pounded two homers as the Yanks beat the Sox 14-2 to ice the American League East. Actually Baltimore lost so they had won it before they finished pounding on the Sox. Now they will have to travel to play the winner of the AL wild card game between Baltimore and Texas on Friday. The Yanks finished with 95 wins, and a team record 245 homers. They seem to finally be getting hot after a lousy second half that allowed O's and the rest of the league to catch up with them. We'll see what happens and this is no doubt the last rodeo for some of the stalwarts of this team.
If there's time, I'll take a look at what went right and wrong with the system this year. Though, the biggest problem with both the big league team and the affiliates was injuries.
But it's a good night for the Yanks and things do look wide open for this post season. Go Yanks.
