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…
