Right now the Yankees and the Red Sox are fighting to win the American League East division. The team who wins that gets a spot in the playoffs and the 2nd place team has to play one game called the wild card game. They have to win that game to get a spot in the playoffs.  The Yankees right now are 3 games back behind the Red Sox.  I’m a big Yankees fan but I think it will be a tight race and here’s why

They each have one of the best pitchers in baseball. The Red Sox have Chris Sale and the Yankees have Luis Severino. I just can’t decide who I think is better.

They also each have amazing fielders. The Red Sox have Mookie Betts in right field and Xander Bogaerts at shortstop, but the Yanks have Aaron Judge in right field and Didi Gregorius at shortstop. All of them are pretty much unstoppable. Not to mention that Didi is one of the best hitters out there.

But if I had to choose which team will make it to first place, I would say the Red Sox because none of my teams ever have good luck.
