The New York Yankees season is hanging by a thread but they kept that thread intact by winning last night. The deficit is still substantial and the Yankees need to make up a 7.5 game gap in the East or the 5 game gap in the Wild Card. Oh and by the way they need to do this before the trade deadline so they know whether or not they need to sell or buy.
