  • AL playoff scenarios...

    Of course, we all know about the Yankees/Red Sox series which will decide the AL East....but I was thinking about the overall playoff picture.

    For the Red Sox to win the division, they have to win all three games.
    For the Yankees to win the division, they have to win at least 2 games.
    For the Indians to clinch the wild card, they have to win all three from the White sox.


    Here's where it gets interesting: If the Red Sox win 2, they are in a tie with the Yankees for the playoffs. They would have to play a tiebreaker to decide who wins the division.
    If the Indians also win 2 of their series, they would also be tied....and would then have to play the loser of the Yankee/Red Sox game to decide who gets the wild card.

    Either way, it'll be an interesting weekend.

    If the last scenario happens, say bye bye to that potential off day for the Cardinals.....

      Yup. That's the first thing that crossed my mind too.
      Of course you do.

        Remember that if the Red Sox win 2 but the Indians don't then there is no playoff as H2H would decide the winner of the AL East and the 2nd place team would win the Wild Card.

            The tentative schedule right now is...if the Birds play the Padres, they play on Tuesday and Thursday...

            If they were to play the Phils, they'd play on Wednesday and Thursday...

            If the last scenario happens, they'd end up playing on Wednesday and Thursday regardless...so they'd be off on Monday and Tuesday, as well as Friday...
