Baseball Update

August 25, 2019

The race for the top seed in the American League between the Houston Astros and New York Yankees had another “seesaw” week (The film,”Two for the Seesaw,” with Shirley MacLaine and Robert Mitchum aired yesterday on TCM), this time, with the Astros gaining significant ground.

Two weeks ago, Houston led by a game, went (1-6) (Sunday-Saturday) including a loss in a Verlander start, with Houston, one of, if not the biggest, road favorites in memory. The Yankees went (7-1) during that period and led the ‘Stros by four and a half games, beginning play last Sunday.

A week later, Houston went (6-1) (Sunday-Saturday), their lone loss taken by Verlander, despite a 2 hit game, as the biggest game favorites in memory (over 5 to 1). The Yankees went (1-5) during that period and each team is (84-47), with Houston owning the tiebreaker.
