I sure to hope to hell the Angels arent in that group! But, even as big a Ranger fan as i am, dont count Oak out for the division yet! Rangers have to win one of three but its gonna be a tough series! Sea will probably be no help in keeping the Angels down, but i can hope!

I'm not counting out the A's from winning the division. Can you imagine a scenario where Texas and the Yanks will be playing in the wild card game...

Sorry passedpawn, but it's over. The A's won. Which eliminated the Ray's. Better luck next year, now drown your sorrows. Say ... Go Rays 2013... Lets have some fun...Root for the A's to sweep Texas, The Yanks to lose the next two, Orioles win the next two (against the Rays unfortunately) to win the division, and look for a wild card game between the Rangers and Yankees. Both would be 93 game winners. That would be epic.

Please don't let this scenario happen! What a heartbreak to lead the division from the first day to the last day and then NOT make the playoffs. I can't even imagine how effed up that would be, I pray that Boston gets their **** together and beats the Yanks tonight. And that Texas can pull out 2 more. That's my perfect scenario. Unfortunately, I think the Yanks beat Boston, Texas wins tonight, but the A's probably win tomorrow night. Which give Texas and NY 94 wins and the A's 93. If Baltimore beats Tampa the that makes the Bal and Oak tied with 93. So what happens then? Bal and Oak play for playoff and Texas, Det and NY win their divisions right?

Wow, I had no idea that could happen. I can't root for the Rays to lose, just can't do it, but I'd love to see that scenario play out that you mention there.

Congrats to Tiger fans. Their team deserves to be where they are. Cabrera is an MVP for sure.

Pretty crazy with 2 games left to play. I know that the Tigers are hosting the first two games against someone. In your scenario, Orioles and A's will play the wild card. Whoever wins will play at home against the Yankees starting Sunday, and Texas will play Tigers in Detroit starting Saturday.

Let's say that the 5 teams in the playoffs all split the next two games. This puts TX and NY tied for first with 94 wins, Bal and Oak tied with 93 wins and Det with 88 wins. Bal and Oak would have a one game playoff for the wild card spot, right? Would TX and NY then have a one game playoff for the #1 seed?

Detroit is in, no question. BAL OAK play Friday for wild card. TX NY if tied, the #1 goes to NY based on head to head during regular season. NY won regular season series 4 games to 3.

This makes more sense, but for some reason I was thinking there would have to be a playoff for the #1 seed. And if TX doesn't win at least one of these games with OAK, it will be us playing in the playoff for the wild card. Tonight is their best chance. Harrison is on the mound and he has been money all year. Dempster pitches tomorrow and I'm still on the fence about him. At times he has been great and other he sucked goat balls.

This stuff is stressful for us. I can't imagine how the players can handle it. One Bill Buckner moment and no matter what you did your whole career. You will be remembered for 1 play.
