    Well, since it's kinda slow...my predictions are:
    Tie for the AL East and Wild Card. Yanks win the 1-game playoff against Boston, and Cleveland beats Boston as well. (is that how they're gonna do that?)

    Astros win the NL Wild Card.

      Houston wins, Who knows about the American league.
      If Schilling wins Sunday to clinch you east coast haters better not turn on ESPN.
      Be passionate about what you believe in, or why bother.

        I would love to see Cleveland get in. They have been on fire the 2nd half of the season. Plus, if they get in it means either Boston or the Yankees did not.

          How does the AL East tie-breaker work. I was thinking that the Red Sox had to sweep to win the division since they are 7-9 against the Yanks this year.

            It goes like this............

            If there is a tie for the AL East AND the Wild card, the Yanks/Sox play a one gamer and Cleveland automatically gets in because the loser of that one game playoff will have one more loss than the wild card leader (Cleveland).........

            If the Yanks and Sox tie but finish ahead of Cleveland, then the one with the better record vs each other gets the title and the other gets the wild card.

              I think the loser of the Yanks-BoSox game would take on the Indians for the WC title, different from the old way you mentioned.

                FYI

                Any one-game tie-breakers would be scheduled for Monday, October 3rd, with times to be determined.
