2 Teams That Could Derail the Astros Yankees Championship Series

We are inching closer to September and that mean the end of the baseball season is near. Football season begins as the baseball season slowly dwindles down. In the American League, many people think it will come down between the Astros and Yankees. They are the two favorites to represent the American League in the upcoming World Series. New York started the season as the hottest team for a long time. Many thought they could challenge for the best record ever in a season. They have cooled down even though Aaron Judge is still having a monster season. The Houston Astros have crept up and overtaken the Yankees for the best record in the AL. The Astros have people anticipating a ALCS against the Yankees. Below are two teams that could derail the Astros Yankees ACLS.

Seattle Mariners

Seattle put themselves in this position when they went on that 14-game winning streak. Julio Rodriguez is someone that could get hot on the offensive side of things. Rodriguez finished with 81 home runs in the derby. Ty France is one of the better first basemen in the game. France was an All-Star this season . Pitching is what teams need to challenge for a championship. Seattle ranks in the top-5 in ERA and Logan Gilbert in an intricate part of their youth movement. The Mariners haven’t sniffed the playoffs in the 21 years. This season could end that drought seeing they’re the leaders in the Wild Card standings. If the Mariners reach the postseason, they could be a real threat to the Yankees and Astros.

Tampa Bay Rays

Tampa Bay is currently tied with the Blue Jays for one of the Wild Card spots. The Rays have one of the better pitching rotations in the league. They are barely behind the Astros and Yankees in the AL. All-Star Shane McClanahan is leading the ways with an ERA under 2. The offense is a little suspect, but their pitching makes up for it. Despite the great pitching, they still need some run support which is why the Mariners have a better shot than the Rays. Either way, the Rays are a real danger to the potential Astros Yankees championship series.
