Red Sox Could Play Spoiler In American League Postseason Race (Video)


There’s less than a week left in the MLB regular season, but that doesn’t mean the American League playoff picture is settled.

The Boston Red Sox have a chance to impact the race, too, as they face the New York Yankees this week. New York currently holds the first wild card spot by 3 1/2 games.

“The Yankees feel like they’re going to slide right into it because they’ve been holding this lead for a long, long time,” NESN’s Dennis Eckesley said on “Red Sox First Pitch” before Tuesday’s game. “But everyone else is playing playoff baseball.”

Hear more from NESN’s Adam Pellerin, Steve Lyons and Eckersley in the video above.
