The Yanks Are Coming!

So the Yankees have gone 20-8 after the All Star Break, to close within 6 of the Red Sox. Bravo, except that they've spent the month playing:

Tampa Bay
Toronto
Tampa Bay (again)
Kansas City
Baltimore
Chicago (AL)
Kansas City (again)
Toronto (again)

Not too hard to run up your record against that lot, really. If they survive their upcoming stretch against teams with a pulse, then maybe they'll have something. But lots of these mid-summer "surges" are a product of a decent team chewing into the soft underbelly of their schedule, and the 2007 Yankees are no exception.
