Can we start a Yankees' magic number countdown?

The magic number is now 10.

The Yankees have a very tough upcoming schedule: One more game with the Angels, and then the Rays, White Sox, Orioles, Blue Jays, and Red Sox, with the final six games coming on the road.

Also, the Rays and Red Sox play each other four more times. Someone has to win those games, and each win drives the stake in the Yankees' heart just a little further.

It is all but over. If the Rays and Sox play .500 ball the rest of the way the Yanks can win every game on out and not make the playoffs. Really except for formalities 3 of the four AL playoff teams have been decided, and the Rays and Boston are battling for the right not to face the Angels in the first round.

Apparently the Rays have an "Evil Empire Countdown" number in the front office.

Yes. The not-so magic number for us to clinch last place is 6.

So wait, we're in last, and having another terrible stretch as the season ends, but we'll continue to celebrate the fact that Yankees are in 4th..I'll never understand this for the life of me. Oh well, it is what it is, rejoice!!!!

Us in last and the Yankees in 4th is better than us in last and the Yankees in 1st. That doesn't really seem debatable to me.

I guess, but to me it doesn't matter who's in first when the Orioles are terrible. I just don't care enough about any other team in our division. I care how the O's do, what everyone else does doesn't mean a thing to me unless we're in a race with them.

If it makes people happy that the Yankees are having a bad year, I'm all for it. It just doesn't change any of our problems. Once we get our stuff together, then I'll worry about the Yankees, Red Sox, Jays, and Rays.

Have you ever been to an Orioles-Yankees game at OPACY in September in the last ten years? Seen the smug Yankee fans act as if OPACY was their home stadium?

If you have ever experienced this, I don't see how you couldn't care. Sure I wish the Orioles were in the race. But so long as they aren't, the next best thing is to see the Yankee fans knocked down a peg.

I only hope we can have the pleasure of being the team to mathematically eliminate them, during the last homestand ever played at Yankee Stadium. Then the Oriole fans who are there can preen and mug and dance in the aisles while the Yankee fans feel that empty feeling we've felt every year for the last 11 years.

That would be sweet.
