Too early to call the American League East race over? Too early to say this team could run away with it? After they won five of six against the Twins and Blue Jays, how far-fetched is it to say the Red Sox are well on their way to winning this in a landslide? There is no competition.

 

 

Kevin Hench of Fox Sports, 5/31/07

 

The Yankees will not erase a 14-game deficit and reel in the Red Sox, nor will they catch the runner-up in the A.L. Central for the wild card. In what seems certain to be his last season as manager in New York, Joe Torre will miss the playoffs for the first time.

 

 

Chris Russell of Sporting News, 5/20/07

 

That is why the Yankees are done. It's early, but go ahead and pin this up. Take it to the bank.

 

 

Eric Wilbur of Boston.com, 8/7/07

 

They’re just a half-game out of the wild card lead, but let’s not overlook the competition they’ve abused to get into this position. That’s about to change, as it is for the Red Sox in a completely opposite manner. Before Boston heads to the Bronx on Aug. 28, it will face teams that it is a combined 17-5 against this season.

 

The Yankees have gone 19-7 against similar competition. But that’s coming to an end. As is any lingering alarm that they might make a run at the division. Call it obnoxious, call it foolhardy, call it a certain counting of fowl, whatever. Six games might be as close as they get from here on out. In just over a week, it might even be eight.

way too many people jumped to conclusions, as usual, in may and june--including many yankee fans. when will people learn that 14 games is nothing when you have 100 games left to play?

 

When their editors stop demanding they make those kinds of predictions, and when the nation doesn't get a hard on anymore when the Yanks aren't doing well.

MANY Yankee fans were saying the same things. Of course, now they swear they were behind the team the whole way. suuuuuuuure you were... ;) My brother in law was calling for Torre's head in July, and ranting about how the Yankees sucked and it was over. This week, he was like a born again Yankee fan giving me hell about the Mets' 5 game losing streak.

 

 

 

 

That's just the way sports is. Look in the Mets section. There are a few people there proclaiming the Mets dead. I'm sure when the Mets roll off a few wins in a row, and the Phillies bullpen implodes, they'll be celebrating with the rest of us. :TU:

Yeah that was a bit of overreacting. But the fact that they were about 7 games out just a mere 3 weeks ago may have been reason to panic. But nice job by the Yanks thus far.
