601 saves is the golden number, not that he needed any justification that he is the greatest to ever play the game. It is good to see it become official.

The Yankees have all but clinched the division thanks to the colossal collapse of the Red Sox. With a five game lead and like eight games left against the Rays the Red Sox have become the Yankees biggest fans. There are so many possible ways that the Red Sox don’t even make the playoffs now, unfortunately most of them involve the Yankees getting beat by the Rays. As it stands right now the Yankees would get home field advantage and face the Rangers and the Red Sox would be on the road to Detroit. I don’t think anyone wants to face Verlander right now but I predict that the Red Sox will have to and I also predict that the ACLS will come down to the Yankees and the Red Sox because that’s what I want to see.
