FINALLY a post worked.... It kept crashing.
➖Be sure to read this as I breakdown what's on the post, also where we stand heading into our weekend series against the Rangers🔥 In these playoff probabilities, I made my best estimate of the Yanks chances. Playoffs considers Wild Card, so I have a strong feeling they'll make it there. The chance is 82%! To me, a season like this isn't a success if we get into a WC and lose. Last year when we were trying to battle back, a WC loss would be a season success just to get into the playoffs.
I'd say we have a 40% shot at winning the division. The Sox are tough. But I think we'll fight a battle with them, because as we showed on the Sox/O's home stand, we can be GOOD. So maybe 45% chance to beat Sox. And a 5% chance that either Rays, Jays, or Os win division.
Now I break down the Wild Card. Now I know anything can happen, but I'd imagine that either RedSox or Yanks will be the home 1st Wild Card team. And there is a ton of teams hovering around .500 in the AL that are looking to break out and take that 2nd WC spot. Right now Tampa Bay (Yes, you heard that correctly) has the 2nd spot, but only by 0.5+. Teams in the mix: TB, BAL, TOR, LAA, TEX, SEA, KC. If my prediction is correct , one of those teams would visit the Yanks or Sox to play the AL Wild Card Game on Tuesday, October 3 at 8:00PM ET on ESPN. ⭐️ALDS. What I've been waiting for us to do since we did it in 2012 when I was just getting into the Yanks...I wanna feel like what's that like again. I've watched so many past Division Series games on YouTube... I just love that series more than the others for some reason. A great feeling. Our problem is that if we win the East, we'll play the Indians. The reason that's a problem is cause we'll probably get that annoying Kennny Albert announcer for FS1. The more hype route would be to win the Wild Card, go to Houston and the electric atmosphere...Matt Vasgersian announcing...best stuff, a dream come true to me just to get to something so exciting. But I know that Houston has given us problems in the past, and that they'll be extremely tough to beat in the ALDS considering they're the best team in the MLB in 2017....
