Rays, Royals tonight out in the heartland…

The Rays are good, really good. But their park is empty. Ken Belson has the depressing details in the Times.
The Yanks have lost four straight, seven of their last eight. They’ve been back-and-forth with the Rays for first place all season, a steady give-and-take, a dance. Now, the Rays are up by a half-game. But unless something horrible happens (the Red Sox trail the Yanks by seven games for the wildcard), they are both making the playoffs.
Tonight gives Matt Garza against the kid Nova, in his biggest test yet. Should be fun. I see the Bombers scoring some runs–don’t know if they’ll haul in the Score Truck, but more than enough to win.
Time to get back to the business of being in business.
Let’s Go Yan-Kees!
