51 Games Left

There are 51 games left in the regular season for both the Yankees and the Red Sox, Boston leads the Yankees by seven games. The Sox play the Yankees six times in the next 56 days, three at home, three away. The Red Sox have a slightly easier schedule with their opponents in the remaining 51 games having an average winning percentage of .483 while the Bomber's opponents average .512 and the Sox have 25 home games and finish off the season at home to the Yankees 23 home games and they finish off the season away.
Of course none of this means anything in real life because anything can still happen and often does. I think all things being equal, which they aren't Boston has the edge, the Yankees have an up hill climb to capture the AL East. Of course the Evil Empire is right in there for the wild card race, which may lead to a Boston - New York ALCS which is like the World Series only more important.
