Am I crazy for wanting us to finish behind the Yankees? I do not want to play Oakland, who has a better record than us for the past 3 months. They are something like 72-36 since a poor start.

yes, so as of this moment...

for the Yankees to have home field...they have to run the table and have the Astros lose 2 games

Magic number to clinch home field advantage through the ALCS is now 8.

What would be fun would be for Cleveland to knock off the A's in the WC playoff.

I do too, but I think avoiding a team in your division who is as hot as anybody is worth more than home field advantage. Oh well, good problem to have I guess.

So Altuve has now lost 100 three years in a row AND won 100 games three years in a row.

He's got to be the only player to do that

This team is so good

One parallel to 2017 is that there are a lot of guys accomplishing.some great things and having phenomenal seasons.

The really are a joy to watch!

and the Blue Jays may get one from NYY this weekend

In one decade. I doubt any team has ever pulled that off.

I expect Toronto to take one. They're playing decent ball right now and little Biggio is flat raking.

Lol, Jansen blows another save. Dodgers up 6-4 top 9 and he allows two runs to Tampa Bay. Home fans were booing the F out of him too

Rays take 2-run lead in the 11th. Tampa Bay doesn't deserve this team. Let 'em move

Someone help me out with the math here. I'm pretty sure I calculated this right but I don't mind a 2nd look at it. If the Astros win their next 9 then they clinch home field advantage. Is that right?

The Astros need to win only 8 of their remaining 9 games to clinch home field advantage since they own the tie-breaker against the Yankees, i.e. a 4-3 head to head record.
