The Yankees’ Division Rivals

In the American League East, the Yankees’ chief rivals are the Boston Red Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays. The Yankees and the Red Sox have been rivals for over 100 years and are considered one of the best rivalries in all of sports. The Rays have only been around since 1998, but they have quickly become a thorn in the Yankees’ side.

The Red Sox

The Red Sox are one of the Yankees’ biggest rivals and the two teams are often vying for first place in the AL East standings. The Red Sox have won the World Series a total of nine times, most recently in 2018.

The Rays

The Tampa Bay Rays are an American professional baseball team based in St. Petersburg, Florida. The Rays compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) East division. Since its inception, the team’s home venue has been Tropicana Field.

Heading into the 2020 season, the Rays had an all-time regular season win-loss record of 1,786–1,886 (.486).

What the Yankees Need to Do to Win the Division

The Yankees are in a tough spot. They are currently in 4th place in their division and are 5.5 games back from the first place team. They need to start winning games and they need to do it quickly. Here are a few things that the Yankees need to do to win their division.

The Yankees’ Magic Number

As of September 19, 2019, the Yankees’ magic number to clinch the American League East division is 7. The Yankees have a record of 93-51 and are in first place in the AL East. The second-place team in the division, the Tampa Bay Rays, are 8.5 games behind the Yankees with a record of 84-59.

The magic number is determined by taking the leading team’s wins and subtracting it from the second place team’s losses. As more games are played and one team either wins or loses, the magic number changes.

In order for the Yankees to win the division, they need to either have a lead of 8.5 games or more over second place OR they need to have more total wins than any other team in their division (if there is a tie for first place).

The Yankees have 27 games left to play in the regular season. If they win 18 of those games, they will clinch the division outright regardless of what the Rays do.

The Yankees’ Remaining Games Against Their Rivals

The Yankees are currently in second place in the AL East, behind the Tampa Bay Rays. They have 22 games remaining on their schedule, including six against the Rays. They also have four games each against the Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles, and three games against the Boston Red Sox.

In order to win the division, the Yankees will need to play well in these remaining games against their rivals. They will need to continue to hit home runs and score runs, and they will need their pitching staff to step up and make big plays. The Yankees have the potential to make a run at the division title, but they will need to play their best baseball in order to do so.
