The Tampa Bay Rays are now just two games back, in the loss column, in the chase for the second A.L. wildcard chase.
If the Rays can hang in there, against the White Sox for the next three games, it will be interesting to see them close out the season against the Orioles.
But, if Tampa falls out of it in the next three games, then they will have nothing to play for when they face Baltimore.
Of course, the White Sox have a lot to play for now, as well – since they are fighting the Tigers for first in the A.L. Central.
Oh, and, by the way, the A’s will be in this thing too – as they play the Mariners for three and then close out with three against the Rangers, who they are chasing in the standings. And, Texas is now playing the Angels for three games – who are in the same wildcard position as the Rays!
Man, whoever made up the schedule for the A.L. this year was a genius!
