New york yankees: Clinched
Why They'll Win: The Bronx Bombers batting. Not only do they lead both leagues in home runs but Jeter is hitting .333 since getting his 3000th hit. Despite, the Yankees reliance on high priced mercenaries, their hottest hitter right now is, Jesus Montero, a product of their minor leagues.
Why They Won't: Starting rotation. After CC Sabathia, the Yankees have few options to round out their starting rotation and lack a second quality starter with playoff experience. Iván Nova(16-4, 3.62 ERA) is only a rookie, A.J. Burnett is 10-11 and Freddy Garcia is winless in September.
MVP: Cano has surged down the stretch while Granderson has faltered.
