It won't be easy, though. The Dodgers have turned their season completely around in the month of July, led by former Yankees great and current manager Don Mattingly. Los Angeles has gone 18-5 this month to take over the division lead and become one of the National League's best teams.
The Yankees, on the other hand, have not been good this month or since the All-Star break, with the Sunday victory over Tampa being one of the few shining moments. The good news for the Yankees is Derek Jeter is back in the lineup, Alfonso Soriano is back on the team, and Curtis Granderson's return is on the horizon. The Yankees just need to start stockpiling wins and moving forward in their quest for the postseason.
