It's almost post season time in Major League Baseball. So it's time to talk about what the Yankees need to do to win the AL east.The "magic number" is the number of games the Yankees have to win to clinch the AL East. With the Orioles being so close the Yankees need to win seven of their remaining eight games. Now that number get's lower if the Orioles lose too.

The Yankees have eight games left:

One @ Minnesota Twins

Four @ Toronto Blue Jays

Three Home against The Boston Red Sox to end the season.

The Yankees have far from locked it up but MLB.com has them with a 85.7% Chance of winning the AL East and a 99.8% chance of making the post season.
