The next ten games – 4 against the Tampa Bay Rays at home, 3 at Boston and 3 against the Mets, can demonstrate whether or not the Yankees are a legitimate top team in the AL or simply a team that has been able to beat up on some of the weaker teams in the AL.

The Yankees are 2-5 against the Rays and 0-6 against the Red Sox.  They have not face the Mets yet this season.  They will play the Rays and Sox several more times this season, but a 7-3 record, or better, in the next 10 games will show the league that the Yankees do indeed mean business.
