GRAB THE CHAMPAGNE, WE ARE IN THE PLAYOFFS!

  • Detroit Tigers have a magic number of 2 to win the Central division, their concentration is the Cleveland Indians. The Tigers division clinch can happen Monday with win and Indians loss, or win the next two if Indians continue their winning strides.
  • The AL Wild Card is a mess, Tampa Bay (Top Wildcard by .5 games) has a magic number of 7, this week is a good week for the AL wildcard teams.
  • St. Louis Cardinals have won a playoff berth, but the division is next in their sights. The magic number for Cardinals is 5, their concentrations are on the Cincinnati Reds and Pittsburgh PIrates.
  • Cincinnati and Pittsburgh are both tied for the top wild card spot, they can make it a two way race with wins and Washington loss or 2 wins from both teams. Nonetheless, this weekend’s finale with these two should be a dandy.

YOU GOT SEEDS, NOW PLANT THEM

  • Boston can claim homefield advantage throughout playoffs with two wins and three losses from Athletics, the magic number is 5.
  • Detroit and Oakland are battling for the 2 seed, Detroit has a magic number of 9 against Oakland
  • The AL Wildcard, I’ll let that one play out, it is only one game.
  • All three division leaders will be battling for home field advantage, Atlanta leads St. Louis by 1 game but leads Los Angeles by 2 games, the Braves magic number to claim homefield is 5.
  • St. Louis will also battle for 2nd seed and homefield, St. Louis’ magic number on Dodgers is 6.
  • Cincinnati and Pittsburgh, wait till the weekend.
