If you've been paying attention to the AL standings lately, you no doubt have noticed that the Yankees lead in the AL East has slowly been eroding. Once a good 10 games ahead of Boston, they are now just barely hanging on to a 3-game lead.
Now, reeling from a record-breaking 22-0 shutout by the Indians (the most lopsided shutout in AL history), they stand to lose even more confidence.
I'm sick of the Yankee's big money machine buying a World Series entry just about every year. However, while I'm sure last night's game will do nothing to stop the big-markets stranglehold on all professional sports, at least I can relish one day of the Yankees suffering complete and utter humility.
Is it too much to hope for denial of the title?
