After missing out of the 2008 playoffs, the New York Yankess are the 2009 American League Eastern Divison Champions.
The Yankess got back in after sweeping the three game weekend series against their rival, Boston Red Sox.
They will meet the Central Divison Winner, which will either be the Detroit Tigers or the Minnesota Twins.
The Minnesota Twins and Detroit Tigers were to start a four game set starting tonight but due rain it was cancled. They will play two games on Tuesday. The magic number is 9 for Detroit to capture the Central Division. How ever Detroit has only a two game lead over Minnesota.
