Game Ovah! Season Ovah. Red Sox Banish Yankees To Wild Card With 8-4 Victory
The NY Yankees will be the 2010 American League wild card team after they again lost to the Boston Red Sox on Sunday. The final was 8-4 Good Guys.

I had a great time typing to you this season of 2010. I'll do it again next year and I'll be back with daily posts about the upcoming off season manipulations the Red Sox must complete.
