Yankees could celebrate Sunday
The Yankees’ magic number to clinch a playoff spot heading into Sunday’s play is down to two, meaning if the Yankees can beat Seattle’s Ian Snell and the Rangers cooperate against the Angels, there will be a celebration of some sort in the visiting clubhouse at Safeco Field.
The eyes are on the main prize, of course, which is the division. The magic number to clinch the American League East is nine, and any combination of Yankees victories and Red Sox losses will get them there. So if it happens, expect it the liquid refreshment to be more of the variety that you’d get at your local dive bar, not the stuff that needs a cork to be popped.
Besides, these guys have a flight to catch.
