Although neither team has lived up to their true potential so far this year, with one week to go the Yankees and Red Sox are dead even at the top of their division. There are seven games to go for each, and they finish the season with three games against each other. The Sox were rained out tonight, and will play a day-night doubleheader tomorrow to catch up. The only way that the season is not in doubt going into the final weekend will be if one team loses all of their four games prior to the weekend, and the other team loses. That's highly unlikely, though stranger things do happen. Witness last year's Yankee collapse in the post-season. The Yankees have an 11-0 lead in the 8th inning against Baltimore at the moment, so unless they collapse monumentally right at this moment, they're guaranteed at least a chance to tie for the division lead no matter what they do tomorrow through Thursday. A further bit of excitement is provided by the fact that Alex Rodriguez and David Ortiz are the concensus favorites for the American League MVP. The three-game series next weekend could very well provide the determining factor in that as well.
