Know Thine Enemy: Let's Go Tribe
Today's game means a lot, because friends: there is a possibility of a three-way tie for the two Wild Card spots. For that to happen, though, the Twins need to win this game. After the spanking the Indians have given the Twins the last three days a victory seems unlikely, but hey: the last day of the baseball season is like Christmas. Maybe we all get a wish.
The Rays need to beat the Blue Jays, and the Rangers need to complete their sweep of the Angels, and THEN if Minnesota pulls out a win, we'll get that three-way tie.
Based on cumulative records among them, that would mean the Indians would host the Rays on Monday for the top Wild Card spot, then the loser would play at Texas on Tuesday for the second one. A two-way tiebreaker for the second spot would be played Monday at the team that won the season series. That breaks down to Rays over Indians, Rangers over Rays, and Indians over Rangers -- which also rules if two teams tie for the two Wild Card spots.
So...let's go Twins!
