The Yankees were well on their way to a playoff run until they first played the Blue Jays this month. The Yankees spent the first half of their season in first place, but then the Blue Jays made some crucial trades(one of which could've been for the MVP). After the trade deadline the Blue Jays rocketed into first place, but the Yankees kept it tight until their recent series with the first place Blue Jays. The Yankees just finished up a four game series with the Blue Jays in which they were swept. The Yankees are still within 3 games of the Blue Jays, but the seem to be starting to lose ground.
