The Orioles are clinging to their lead in the AL East (just a half game over Boston as this is being written).
Meanwhile the Yankees keep winning just enough to convince themselves they are in the race, and they might be if they take advantage of this series against the O’s.
I don’t see either team making the playoffs but there is still a fair amount of the schedule left.
Baltimore has yet to make a move to strengthen themselves but when they do it will have to be an arm because the lineup is set.
This group is first in homers and seventh in runs. They are last in MLB in steals but I don’t think they or we should really care.
They might be missing a couple of keys bats during this series in Chris Davis and Matt Wieters.
The Orioles are desperate for pitching help because beyond Chris Tillman it is pretty dicey.
He is not my choice for an ace but it is hard to argue with the results this season as he is second in the Majors with 13 wins and solid peripherals.
The Baltimore bullpen has been very good, especially the Killer B’s of Britton and Brach.
New York Yankees
In a couple of wins to start this series the Yankees have gotten good pitching (just 2 runs allowed) but if they are going to stay in the race they are going to need their lineup to start producing more.
I know this is an aging team but they should be a lot better than 23rd in runs per game. They are struggling from both subpar performances and some cluster luck.
Their pitching gets the negative pub but their are a lot of bats that co better.
For a month it looked like the Yankees just might be able to squeeze some life out of Sabathia.
However, he has given up at least 4ER in each of his last five starts and he seems to have lost the ability to get a big strikeout in a key situation.
The back of the New York bullpen is getting ever more legendary.
Aroldis Chapman hit 105 on the gun the other day and Andrew Miller has 70ks in 41 IP. Sabathia has 73 in 96 for comparison.

Free Baltimore Orioles vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
My initial reaction here is to go over but the O’s are missing some critical pieces without Davis and Wieters.
Tillman is not my favourite but if it is all about winning the team is 17-3 when he is on the mound. 9-0 against the AL East.
By comparison the Yankees are just 8-8 when Sabathia pitches, with a losing record at home and against division opponents.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Baltimore ML
Even though Tillman in on the hill I think we will see Baltimore as just a small favourite in this game. If the number says otherwise go ahead and back them on the run line too.
Even without a couple of big bats they will score runs.
