What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
I was looking at the schedule and barring a miraculous streak by either team, the final three games will determine which team goes to the playoffs. I would be very excited to see basically a three game playoff for the final spot. Buy your tickets now!
I hope that's not the case Matt and I can do without the drama the last 3 games. If we just outplay the Angels by 1 game over our next 9 (they have 10) before that series than we'll be up 4 games and the series will be meaningless as far as the division goes.
I did see that The Angels are now just 4 games back in the wild card race and with the Rays and Red Sox beating up on eachother and then facing the East schedule down the stretch I guess it's possible the Angels could swoop in and steal the Wild Card, which would mean we'd play the Tigers. I don't think this scenario is very likely, but it could certainly happen and I wouldn't be too excited about playing the Tigers right about now.
I think this is secured when the Angels go to Toronto.
Pardon my skepticism, but I have a feeling the Angels will do alright from here on out. Our best chance to make up ground on them is when they play Toronto, and they'll presumably only get to use any of the big 3 for 2 out of the 4 games (unless they do the short rest thing yet again). But I can see them sweeping Baltimore easily, and having little trouble winning most of their last few games.
I give it 50/50 that we'll go to LA up by more than 3 games.
