So the Yankees added to their wild card lead by taking two of three from the Mariners. They could potentially cushion their lead even more this weekend, as the Mariners and Tigers are playing one another. A good weekend for the Yankees against the Royals could either lift them a bit more over both contenders (should they split) or put one team virtually out of the race (should the other sweep).
The division looks like quite a long shot. For any of you out there, is the wild card a disappointment compared to a division title? Or would you simply be happy to see the Yankees make the playoffs after their rough start?
