I really hate the extra wild card. I'm probably the only one. Ive been hoping that since the start teams would be tied and scheduling would be a huge cluster f, since mlb didnt really plan for it at all. But anyhow, at this point I'm hoping the Yanks and O's have to play 163 and the O's win, thus making the Yanks play the 1 game WC game.

Alright, here's what should happen: win tonight. Just win. Secure the best record in the AL. Oakland will take out Dempster, sending Texas to the 1-game playoff with Baltimore, where they'll outslug the O's and meet us in the ALDS.

The only pitcher that scares me on Texas right now on Darvish -- he's rolling as of late. Harrison and Dempster are solid, but they haven't quite been pitching at Yu levels over the past few weeks. In any event, Kuroda and Sabathia can match their best arms pitch-for-pitch. Pettitte is going to be huge. Not sure who we roll out as a fourth starter, but I'm inclined to take *hesitates* Phelps over Hughes and Nova. It'll be interesting to see how the matchups pan out...does Darvish line up for the play-in game? I'd like to see that guy only once if we can help it.

Let Oakland deal with Detroit...with a little bit of luck, we meet up with the Moneyballers in the ALCS.
