If there’s one thing from this past weekend to for sure celebrate as New England begins their work week, it’s that the Red Sox by all means buried the Yankees out of the postseason picture by way of their three-game sweep.
In the Bronx for a three-game set with the Bombers, the Red Sox beat the Yankees with authority on both Friday and Saturday, and even staved off a late-game comeback from New York in Sunday’s finale. The sweep dropped Aaron Boone’s squad to a staggering nine games back of the final wild card spot in the American League, and with just 38 games left in their season.
It’s enough to leave the Yankees with a one percent chance of qualifying for the 2023 MLB playoffs, according to FanGraphs.
No matter the year, and no matter the situation, helping bury the Yankees is something all of Boston can always get behind.
