The next two games are toss-ups for the Yanks/Rangers. If the Sox keep winning, they can put themselves in a nice position no matter what happens in that series.
And don't believe the myth that the Sox are out of the AL East hunt, either. Sure, their chances aren't good but as of today they're 6 back with 37 left to play. All kinds of crazy stuff happens down the stretch - it wouldn't shock me if they're in the hunt right to the end.
