Is it time to start scoreboard watching?


Both the Rays and Yanks have 38 games remaining (with 7 remaining against each other) and as of today 1 game seperates them. Thinking about the stretch I ecided to take a look at what the rest of the season holds for the Yanks and Rays.

Here's the tabular form of what's remaining:

Rays ROS
Away 17 50.07%
Home 21 49.25%
Total 38 49.62%

Yanks ROS
Away 21 52.48%
Home 17 51.50%
Total 38 52.04%

The schedule ahead is in our favor, and where we are after the final trip to NYC in late September might now be where we end based on the soft schedule afterward. I'd love to leave that series with a lead, though, as I have a hard time believing the Yanks will outpace us in those final 10/11 games.
