The Yankees are starting to get a little bit of momentum.
They have won six of their last eight games since they returned home with a series split against the Orioles. The Yankees will wrap up their series with the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday night before playing a series with the Oakland A's.
The Yankees also got a boost with the return of Andy Pettitte on Wednesday afternoon. Pettitte got his fourth win of the season, his first since returning from the DL.
I don't see how the Yankees won't be playing in October if they can continue this roll.
Holding off the Orioles will be a challenge because they continue to play solid baseball this month and they are still in the lead of the AL Wild Card race.
If the Yankees were to win the AL East, which I still think they will do, and get to the playoffs, who would you want them to face in the American League Division Series?
What team in the American League would be the best possible matchup for the Bombers if they get to October?
Let's find out from all the possible contenders.
