Red Sox could catch the Yankees by this time next week

Improbable, but not that improbable.

The Red Sox play four in Kansas City. The Yankees play 3 in Anaheim. There couldn’t be much more difference in the strength these opponents. If the Red Sox seep KC, and the Yankees lose 2 to the Angels, that moves the Red Sox to 2 and a half games behind the Yankees. Then a sweep of the Yankees in New York next weekend would put the Red Sox on top.

That last part, of course, is the rather improbably part. Still, even coming a little short of that, the Red Sox could end the week withing striking distance of the division title, with one week to go in the season.

    Yo bro, I was thinking the same thing the last couple of days.
    Just 4 back in the loss column.

    Most likely scenario is Sox go 3-1 in KC, and Yanks go 1-2 in Anaheim, leaving Sox 3.5 back (3 in loss column) heading into New York.

    Obviously the Sox would have to win 2 of 3 or 3 of 3 in NY.

    After NY, the Sox get 7 home games to finish the season, and they’re awesome at home. All they really would have to do is tie the Yankees, I think, because they (will have) won the season series.
