Morning Coffee! Yankees Need A Wake Up Call Edition

Good morning, New York sports fans! A very autumn-feeling day definitely has eyes on the MLB Playoffs, where a once-sure thing Yankees are reeling, and it doesn't seem many people are noticing.

Blue Jays 5, Yankees 4: Sabathia Falters as Yanks' AL East Lead Shrinks: It would take a monumental collapse for the Yanks to miss October this season, but last night's 5-4 loss in Toronto didn't help. C.C.Sabathia, who was looking for his 20th victory of the season, continued to struggle and labor, and the Bombers have now lost six of their past nine games. Couple that with the Red Sox winning (cutting the Yanks' AL East lead to 3 1/2 games) and two series remaining with the Rays, things might get a little more interesting than Yankees Universe would have hoped for.

Big East Football, Week 3 Preview: Game Times, TV Schedule, Point Spreads: Saturday is College Football day Big East teams have some solid games on tap, including West Virginia battling Maryland and Pittsburgh at Iowa.
