3d, AL East (11 GB)
3d, wild card (7 GB)
Here's your dark-horse candidate. New York, bolstered by the recent return of Hideki Matsui (pictured), has 14 dates on the road and 10 games left at Yankee Stadium. The Yanks could climb back into it if they survive a 10-game test, beginning Friday, that includes the three division leaders. It's a long shot . . . but hey, stranger things have happened.
