The Bx Bombers had built some terrific momentum coming into the Bosox series, much like previous contest in June. Melky Cabrera hit for the cycle at Cellular-One Field and helped the Yanks avert a 4 game sweep at the hands of the Chi-sox. As typical Melky seems to have cooled quite a bit since that enjoyable hot streak. If he could ever hit with any consistency, he would be well above 'replacement' level.
Nonetheless, everyone seems to contribute in what has truly become a murderous row lineup. In contrast the Bosox have done a role reversal, as their pitching staff resembles the injury riddled 2008 Yankee ballclub. The vaunted Red Sox farm system is indeed finite, as they do not seem to have very many replacements for the ailing staff. Additionally, they are also struggling with nagging injuries to position players.
Clearly the Bombers are in control of the AL East; however, I'm more concerned with postseason challenge that the Angels will bring. For whatever reason, they halos seem to matchup well with the Yankees.
