have been thinking of different scenario's and we still have a really good shot

We win tom. and they lose we have a 3.5 game lead.

if we sweep then we win the division

if we win 2 then we win the division

If we win one then we still have a 2.5 game lead with 3 games left + the make up game

If we get swept we still have a .5 game lead



If we have a 2.5 game lead

we sweep then we win the division

if we win 2 then we have a 3.5 game lead with 3 games left

if we win 1 then we have a 1.5 game lead with 3 games left

if we get swept then we are down .5 a game with 3 games left


If we have a 1.5 game lead

we sweep and we win the division

if we win 2 then we have a 2.5 game lead with 3 games left

if we win 1 then we have a .5 game lead with 3 games left

if we get swept then we are down 1.5 games with 3 games left




*there is a game that we could have to play if needed at Home against the Tigers

What made you think that we didn't? We control our own destiny, which is all you can ask for. Now if they could just string a few wins together, and wrap it up already...

just looking at it Mathematically made me feel better about our chances.

Since when was a scenario a possessive noun?

You should probably take a week off from starting threads.

this is a good thread. It shows all the ways that we will miss or make the playoffs and how many games we need to win etc......

It's good but you should have used an Excel Spreadsheet... and then print screen. :o:

I was wondering the same thing as well as when "mathematically" became a proper noun.

We're in pretty good shape, but really tommorow's game is huge. Win and we are guarenteed at least a 2.5 game lead going into Minnesota which means they have to sweep us...if we lose however, well, then we certainly need Tampa to take care of buisness in which case it's no harm no foul.

again tom. The Twins start b4 us so like someone else in another thread I think, Ozzie really has to make sure the Sox get the job done

The odds are certainly in favor of us. If we can just go .500 the rest of the way, I don't think we'll lose this division.
