At the current rate, 90 wins could get the AL East title or the two wild cards.

August 16 - THE END IS NEAR.
The pitching has remained consistant even without most of the starters. Pinada returns today and Tanaka began throwing this past week. However, if the offense doesn't start producing, the season is lost. In the last few games HRISP is awful. Many of the runs scored are on outs or errors by the other team. As of today, they are only one game ahead of Tampa and playing them. they have to climb over at least three teams for the second wild card, but that means play the Angles in the single game play in.

August 17 - Yankees take two of three from the Rays.
Second place 7 games behind the Orioles. In the wild card, they are 3½ behind three teams.

The Detroit bullpen allowed the Yankees only three hits and four walks in eight innings.

For the last month

Yankees will wear this patch.

Replay Rules Changes

Jan. 17, 2014
Each Manager gets one challenge, if successful, a second.
Umpires may call for review after the 7th inning.
All reviews are done at MLB headquaters in NY City.
Teams may have a representative in clubhouse to check plays before suggesting to challenge.
Teams may now show all close plays on scoreboard.
Plays that may be challenged:
Home run
Ground rule double
Fan interference
Stadium boundary calls
Force play - but NOT front end of a double play or neighborhood base tag
Tag play
Fair/foul in outfield only
Trap play in outfield only
Batter hit by pitch
Timing play - did runner tag home before the third out (non-force out) was made
Touching a base
Passing runners
Record keeping - score, ball-stirke counts, substitutions

There is also a change to the rules involving home plate collisions, but more clarity will be needed.

The important part of rule 7.13:
Unless the catcher is in possession of the ball, the catcher cannot block the pathway of the runner as he is attempting to score. If, in the judgment of the Umpire, the catcher without possession of the ball blocks the pathway of the runner, the Umpire shall call or signal the runner safe. Notwithstanding the above, it shall not be considered a violation of this Rule 7.13 if the catcher blocks the pathway of the runner in order to field a throw, and the Umpire determines that the catcher could not have fielded the ball without blocking the pathway of the runner and that contact with the runner was unavoidable.
Watch this play and decide if more discussion is needed.

This puts them over the $189 million luxury tax - winning is more important than the tax money!
