When the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox finish the regular season tied for first place in the American League East division, things could be awfully interesting. How interesting it gets depends upon how Cleveland does this weekend. If Cleveland loses another game, both the Yankees and Red Sox will make the post season, but if Cleveland wins their last two games and the Yankees and Red Sox tie, as I predict they will, we have a unique development on our hands.
Boston and New York will play Monday in New York for the AL East pennant. Then Tuesday, Cleveland will play the loser of the New York-Boston game Monday night for the wild card berth. I'm heavily rooting for this scenario because it would be awesome having the regular season go an additional two days just to figure things out.
Go Cleveland go!
