Welcome back Sports fans! After a 4 game sweep in the Bronx against the Boston Red Sox, the Yankees will now be traveling north of the boarder to Ontario, Canada to face Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and the Toronto Blue Jays.

  1. Not to be a nit picker, but how do the Yankees have only 20 AL clinches and 27 world series wins?

  2. Ok Jamie enough about the Yanks 4 game sweep over the hapless Red Sox. On another note, however, awesome work recapping the weeks highlights. For those who are reluctant to follow (such as) the Bronx Bombers, the in-depth, however, concise recap is quality work. For the home run title I’m at a flux. I hope Maris’ 61 stands!! That’s my nostalgia showing .keep up the fine work “Sports Lover” !! 👍
