safe I can now say that the Yankees have a 99.999% Chance of winning the Division. CC Sabathia is such a competitor and takes every mistake personally. He continued his brilliance this afternoon as the Yankees defeated the Red Sox for the second time in the same number of days 3-0.

Sabathia was Brilliant going 7 innings only allowing 1 hit, a sharp single from Mike Lowell. Dice –K also looked impressive maintaining the scoreless tie into the 6th inning when Robinson Cano hit a solo blast that turned out to be all the Bombers needed.Johnny  Damon added a two run bloop single off Billy Wagner in the 8th inning both runs being unearned.  CC is now 19-7 leading the league in wins. You have to at least put him in the conversation for another CY Young award.

The Yankees can wrap up the division and celebrate at home with a win on Sunday with Andy Pettitte on the mound to face Paul Byrd. The Brooms will be out in full force and the Champagne will be on Ice for a possible victory celebration.
