Yankee fans - get ready to welcome home your fourth place team

It feels like yesterday that I introduced PECOTA's amazing projections for 2008 to the 3 loyal readers of NYYSI. The future looked bright and all signs pointed to a glorious exit for the "House That Ruth Built". Now, after losing 2 out of 3 to the lowliest of lowly Seattle Mariners, and with a 3 game set against the Yankee-killing Angels looming, it is more than likely that the Yankees will return home for their final homestand as a fourth place team. Further, the Yankees elimination number (combined number of Yankee losses and Red Sox wins until the Yankees are eliminated from playoff contention) is down to 12.

Hey, look on the bright side - at least the Orioles have a firm hold on last place in the division.
