Default Tomorrow is Gonna be EXCITING!!!!

I guess it's later today at this point.
Rangers and Oakland play for Division title.
Baltimore and Yanks play(not each other) For possible Division tie.
Cabrera plays for Triple Crown.

Funniest part is that it's not really Cabrera plays for the Triple Crown anymore. He has the RBI's locked up, the average is essentially locked up because they won't allow him to do worse than 0-3 before taking him out, if not 0-2, all that's left is the HR's.

So really, it's Josh Hamilton plays to keep Cabrera from the Triple Crown, hahahaha

Yea, but Hamilton needs to hit 2 to keep Cabrera from the TC, so yea, Cabrera could put it away with one, but really it's up to Hamilton

Not in my book. No legit Triple Crown winner since Frank Robinson in 1966. Harmon Killebrew tried Yaz for Hr's in 1967. So how can one state he has won the HR title when it was a tie?

Did he lose tho? I mean if you are looking at is as he didn't win the homerun title then who won it? Nobody?

We went 4 for 7 against them. Bring em. Wait a sec. You don't want the Yanks to have to face us. I get it. Good call for NY!!

I am going to the last Jays game tonight. I know, I know, it won't be too exciting because we already clinched 4th place in the division.

Correctamundo. I've been very candid in my reluctance to see Detroit in the playoffs.

And I find myself in the unfamiliar and disturbing position of actually rooting for the Yankees today. If they win...see ya...soon.

I could be wrong, but if we win...wouldn't we secure the best record in the AL and face the winner of the play-in game?

The O's beat the Rays, and Red Sox beat the Yankees setting up a one game playoff for the division title with the O's winning that.
