As we head into the last day of August, the Yankees lead the AL East by 6 games, Detroit the Central by 4.5 games and the Angels in the West by 5. Although the race isn't over, the Red Sox have opened up a 3.5 game lead over the Texas Rangers in the Wild Card race with 32 games to play.

Assuming no Mets-like collapses and things remain the same in September, the Yankees would face Detroit in the ALDS, while the Red Sox take on the Angels (again). The Yankees are, on paper, a much superior team to the Tigers. And we know how Red Sox-Angels series turn out.

It looks like things are being set up for a Yankees-Red Sox rematch in the ALCS. It's been five years since the Red Sox epic win in 2004. I think it's time for these arch-rivals to get back together with a trip to the World Series on the line.
