The Kansas City Royals are in Cleveland to play the Indians. And, outside of maybe Sandy Alomar Jr., no one really cares about that series.
However, elsewhere, the Yankees are playing the Blue Jays, the Orioles are playing the Red Sox, the Tigers are playing the Twins and A’s are playing the Mariners. And, New York, Baltimore, Detroit, and Oakland all need wins right now.
Also, the Rays and White Sox are playing each other and they both need to win to stay alive in the race for a post-season berth. Ditto the Angels and Rangers who are playing each other now – although Texas is not as hard up for wins as Los Angeles.
Come Monday morning, we’ll have a better picture of who’s still alive and where in the A.L. hunt for October baseball – thanks to what happens in the next three days. In terms of very late September baseball, it doesn’t get much better than this. Enjoy it!
