• Could The Yankees, Orioles & Rays All End Up Tied For First In The East?

    It’s a reach.  But, play along with this for a moment.

    If the Yankees go 2-4 in their last 6 games, that would put them at 92-70 on  the season.

    If the Rays win all of their remaining 6 games, that would put them at 92-70 for the year.

    And, if the Orioles sweep the Red Sox and then get swept by the Rays, that would put them at, yes, you guessed it, 92-70 after 162 games.

    Now, it’s always possible that the Orioles could split their last 6 games.  And, maybe the Yankees only go 2-4 to close out the season.  But, can both of those things happen and the Rays win every game they have left?  Keep in mind that Tampa is currently on an 8-game winning streak.  So, this means they would have  to close out the season with 14 straight wins.

    Nah, it’s not going to happen…

      You were right. It didn’t happen. Rays lose to White Sox. If the O’s win the next two against the Red Sox, and the Yanks win the next two from the Jays, the Rays will have to beat out the Angels and A’s for the other wild card.
