But it's only going to seem terrible if you start out from the presumption that these games don't REALLY matter, and therefore refuse to accept the tension as real. Me, I like baseball, and I'm going to enjoy the upcoming games.
Not sure if the BBTF bet considered the possibilities of a "push."
Angels down to their last six outs, and the Rangers will no doubt have Scheppers and Nathan ready to go. Game's basically in the bag.
Never underestimate Ron Washington.
It's too bad it can't rain at Minute Maid.
That's big. More than a bloop and a blast now.
If Texas beats the Angels on Sunday, the Ballpark in Arlington will play host Monday to a Rangers-Rays tiebreaker for the second AL Wild Card spot, airing at 8:07 p.m. ET on TBS
So who locked in the protected #1 draft picks? I see 8 teams with <74 wins, and then three teams tied with 74.
How do ties get broken to determine 10 worst records for protected-Draft-pick status?-- Shawn G., Dartmouth, Nova Scotia
Teams' current-year records determine the next year's Draft order. In the case of ties, the previous season's records are used.
With three games left to play, the Astros (51-108), Marlins (59-100) and White Sox (62-97) have clinched the first three picks, in that order, in the 2014 Draft. Even if Chicago and Miami finish the season tied with 62 victories, the Marlins would get the No. 2 overall choice by virtue of their inferior 2012 record (69-93 vs. 85-77).
The Cubs (66-93) and Twins (66-93) will select fourth and fifth, with Chicago holding the tiebreaker edge. The first 10 Draft picks are exempt from free-agent compensation, and which clubs will wind up with the other five protected spots is very much in the air.
The Mariners (70-89), Rockies (72-87), Blue Jays (72-87), Brewers (72-87), Phillies (72-87), Mets (73-86), Giants (74-85) and Padres (75-84) all could wind up on either side of the protected line. If it comes down to tiebreakers, the pecking order among those clubs is this: Rockies, Blue Jays, Mets, Mariners, Padres, Phillies, Brewers, Giants.
Well, the first Yankee save of the post-Rivera era will not be coming today
See, this is why you can't call the play-in game "Game 163"
The Rockies can join the group at 74-88 if they hold onto their 2-1 lead against the Dodgers.
Not sure if that would have an impact on draft order.
You talking about Ken Jeong? He was in the first two (probably 3rd too) Hangovers and is on NBC's Community. Good in small doses only, IMO
So, does Nelson Cruz play tomorrow?
Au revior, Todd Helton.
So it's not enough to just steal the Nordiques, Denver now has to butcher the French language?
It's "au revoir"
You imbeciles! Tabarnac!
Just messing, JE.
I thought the Indians celebration was a bit much considering they won a trip to a one game playoff.
