Rays beat the Yanks 4-0

Magic Number 2 for home field through ALCS


I think that would also clinch home field for the entire playoffs


Looks like magic number is 3 for home field overall. We are currently up on LA by 2 games with 5 to play. LA's max win total is 106, so 3 wins get us to that number and we hold the tiebreaker over LA.

Since we didn't play LA in regular season, tiebreaker is better divisional record. LA has already lost 25 games to NL west teams. We have lost 19 to AL west teams, so then going 5-0 would keep them at 25 losses, us going 3-2 would have us at 21 losses. So we have tiebreaker.

Indians now down 8-3 B7. That will put them 1.5 GB of the Rays

Toro is hitting 100 from right side? Heck Brantley could probably hit 100 right handed...what's the point of being a switch hitter , be curious of his minor league splits
You're talking about 20 ABs. Everyone goes 2-20 at some point.

Brantley is 2 for his last 22 (left handed), btw.

Depends on if they lose tonight. If they do, it's 2 by my math (which is questionable).

Obviously sucks to be out, but glad Dee Gordon is ok there. That's scary.

"Right-handed Keuchel" comp of Greinke is really holding true tonight.

Zack had to work a little extra in that inning. Needed 13 pitches to get the 3 outs. Do better Zack...

the funniest thing I saw was on the Yankees subreddit I think. Somebody said Tucker looked like the generic create a player on MLB the show and I thought that was hilarious

.299 and the OPS is up to 1.018. He's getting there.

For Bregman to steal the MVP, I think there are few things he'll need to do to please some voters.

Get his average to .300 (@ .295)
Push for 40 HRs. (I don't think he can get there, but if he does it'll go a long long way)
Get to 1.000 OPS (he's close)
Extend his lead in RBI & Runs. (104/114 to Trout's 104/110)

.299 - Almost!
Check
Check
Semi Check (needs a bigger lead)


**From 9/15**

How many players have ever hit .300 with 40 HR, 40 doubles, 100 runs scored, 100 walks and 100 RBI in a season?

He did everyone but Avg in 97 then he fell short 2x for doubles. He could have had it all in 94 if not for the injury/shortened season.

That's gotta be so satisfying as a pitcher to strike somebody out and immediately have them rage quit the field

striking out the side will run up your pitch count.

Who cares if he's the strike out leader when your job is to not get runs across the plate.

Not impressed with Cole this year, been much more impressed with Wade Miley despite the much lower K rate


Cole has pretty much the same xwoba as JV and is sporting a ridiculous xfip of 2.36. Buy stock in Cole's 2nd half.
