|Yankees Biggest Challenge Could Come From Within Division|
|Thursday, 26 August 2010 10:16|
As baseball enters the final month of the MLB betting season, the New York Yankees have carried over their dominance from the year before as defending World Series champions, compiling the best record in the major leagues entering play Wednesday night.All preseason baseball previews had tipped them as the title favorite and they justified that presumption with their solid performance. With 78 wins, which include a solid record both at home and on the road, the Yankees have established themselves as the team to beat this season. So who are the clubs with the best chance of taking down the pinstripes?
The Tampa Bay Rays have kept pace with the northbet ting pick Yankees at 78 betting wins, and are tied for the top spot in the American League East. The Rays have identical records at home and on the road, their 39 wins away from home good for the best road record in the league. With the Minnesota Twins and Texas Rangers leading their respective divisions, the Yankees biggest challenge in the American League may come from within the AL East.
If the Yankees make it all the way back to the World Series, then they will likely have to beat either the Philadelphia Phillies or the St. Louis Cardinals. Despite that both teams trail in their respective divisions, at least one of them should make the postseason, and although they may have underachieved to this point in the regular season, both are built for the playoffs. The Phillies have been in the World Series two straight seasons, and could very well be back there in 2010.
