One thing anyone should know is that the Yankees always come back to beat us. They almost did last year and basically did because they got farther in the postseason...
Whether they agree with you or not, you always bring it up out of nowhere even despite the Yankees' slow start and the Red Sox starting very well. Maybe by "only a matter of time", you meant 4-5 months? Most teams don't clinch until September.
Its not farfetched. In the prediction thread, around 90% of people claimed Yankees for AL East.
How is that bringing it out of nowhere?
