Monday Lunch Thread: Lesser of Two Eastils

There is a tiny chance that Boston could sneak up on the Yankees and take the AL East. Were the Angels to sweep New York in their series beginning tonight while Boston swept Kansas City, the AL East leaders would be down to a 2-Game lead going into a three game series against the 2nd place Red Sox.

Were the Red Sox able to take the AL East from the Yankees, they would host the AL Central champions in the ALDS and the Angels would host the wild card Yankees for games 1 and 2.

Would hosting the Yankees in the ALDS be preferable knowing that it could be followed by a possible ALCS with 4 of of 7 games in Fenway "no called 3rd strikes to the home team" Park?
