NEW YORK—Start the playoff countdown.
With the Yankees’ win over the Twins and the Angels’ loss to the Indians, New York’s magic number to reach the playoffs dipped on Wednesday.
Heading into play on September 21, the Yankees magic number to clinch a postseason berth is now just three.
That’s the combined number of Yankees wins and Angels losses that will guarantee at least a postseason berth for the pinstripes.
I guess the Yankees should start lining up their pitching for the coin flip game. I am hoping the Twins take the second wild card, because the idea of facing Mike Trout in a winner-take-all game is frightening.
