Much like the 2011 AL Wild Card race, the league's MVP race is excitingly close as the season comes to a close. But Ellsbury just separated himself from the pack of candidates.
With Tampa's lost to Flordia and the Yankees' win over the Mets, New York stand alone atop the AL East.
The Yankees have kept what could have been a sinking ship afloat, and are now charging towards 1st.
With Curtis Granderson gone for 15 days or more, the Yankees need to sign Jermaine Dye ASAP.
After just a month, I think everybody's surprised as to which center fielder/leadoff hitter is performing better.
The three game series between the Yankees and Red Sox had it all, including the emergence of Curtis Granderson as a Yankee.
Granderson becomes the next candidate to attempt a claim in the Yankee lineage of center fielders.
The Yankees' capped an offseason of intelligent and economical moves with the signing of a veteran relief pitcher.
While the Granderson trade stole all the headline the value in signing Nick Johnson should not be underestimated.
And why the Milwaukee Bucks ain't worth squat.
