The Yankees’ Upcoming Games
The New York Yankees are a professional baseball team based in the Bronx, New York. They compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) East division. They are one of two major league clubs based in New York City, the other being the National League’s (NL) New York Mets. The Yankees began play in the 1901 season as the Baltimore Orioles (no relation to the modern Baltimore Orioles). In 1903, Frank Farrell and Bill Devery purchased the franchise after it ceased operations and moved it to New York City, renaming the club the New York Highlanders. The Highlanders were officially renamed as the “Yankees” in 1913.
The team is owned by Yankee Global Enterprises, an LLC controlled by the family of the late George Steinbrenner, who purchased the team in 1973. Brian Cashman is the team’s general manager, and Aaron Boone is the team’s field manager. The team plays its home games at Yankee Stadium in Concourse, Bronx, an $2.3 billion stadium that opened in 2009 to replace their original stadium, also referred to as “The House That Ruth Built”. The stadium underwent massive renovations during the offseason of 2019–2020 following damage caused by Hurricane Maria in September 2017.
The Yankees are one of baseball’s most successful teams; they have won 27 World Series championships—more than any other MLB team—and 40 American League (AL) pennants. As of 2019, Forbes valued them at $4 billion, making them second-most valuable sports franchise worldwide behind only Manchester United of England’s Premier League soccer circuit. Many analysts consider their rivalry with the Boston Red Sox as one of baseball’s greatest rivalries.
The Yankees’ Probable Starting Pitchers
The New York Yankees have not yet announced their starting pitchers for the upcoming series against the Baltimore Orioles, but we can take an educated guess based on the team’s recent rotation. Based on the current rotation, we expect CC Sabathia to start the series opener on Friday, followed by Masahiro Tanaka on Saturday and James Paxton on Sunday.
The Yankees’ Postseason Chances
The Yankees have been on a roll lately, winning 14 of their last 16 games. They are currently in first place in the AL East and are on track to make the playoffs. However, they have a tough road ahead. They have 27 games left to play, including 18 against teams that are above .500.
The Yankees’ Magic Number
The Yankees’ magic number is the specific combination of Yankees wins and losses by their nearest rivals that will eliminate the Yankees from post-season contention. That number is determined by taking the total number of games the leading team has played and subtracting from it the difference in the two teams’ win-loss records. For example, if a team has played 162 games and has a record of 90-72, its magic number would be 162-(90-72), or zero.
The Yankees’ Remaining Games Against Contending Teams
The Yankees have 27 games remaining on their schedule. Twelve of those games are against teams that are currently in contention for a playoff spot.
The Yankees play the Red Sox six more times, the Rays seven more times, and the Twins three more times. They also have one game each against the Indians, A’s, and Padres, who are all just outside of the playoff picture.
Of those twelve games, seven are at home and five are on the road. The Yankees have a better home record than they do road record this season, so they will be looking to take advantage of that fact.
In order to make the playoffs, the Yankees will need to win a majority of their remaining games against contending teams. They will also need some help from other teams in order to make up for their current deficit in the standings.
