The Yankees only win because they are lucky. Forget the pythagorean standings and other statistical minutia. The Yankees would be 0-162 if they were not lucky. Tonight they got a lucky HR by Alex Rodriguez who they were lucky to trade for and lucky to re-sign. All of their fans live in New Jersey and stay out of the Bronx except during games to reserve the luck for the Yankees who need it, they need to stay lucky.
Meanwhile the Angels are now 3.5 games back in the AL West and are back at .500 with a 30-30 record. 102 Games left to play, at least they are a tick ahead of my preseason prediction of a 79-win team.
