Are personal stats effected in anyway by this game or do the personal stats carry over as Post Season stats?

I need one home run from Thome or Konerko to tie in the Mac Jurko Harry Cubs-Sox bets I do w/ a buddy (A bottle of Noah's Mill on the line!), I'm just about to send him an email reminding him that this is Regular Season, and the stats are Regular season stats and will count.

163rd game stats are part of the regular season.

So we still have a 40 man roster?

All of the normal regular season rules apply. This is nothing more than a regular season game, like yesterday's and the 161 before that.

Stats count toward the regular season.

The only difference is in the TV contract: TBS happens to have the rights to any game 163+. That's all.

that is a good question. I would assume so because it is still the regular season in sept. But you know what they say about those who assume...

read the posts right above you. this is an extension of the REGULAR season. so yes to: having a 40-man roster and stats from the game counting as regular season stats.

Can the wildcard team ever have homefield?
If the Red Sox should meet the White Sox...who has home field?
Division winners should always retain home field,imo,but not sure what the rule is.

The Wild Card team is always at a homefield disadvantage, even if they have the second or third best record. Boston and Milwaukee can not have homefield advantage in the playoffs (well Boston can in the World Series).

im almost positive that the wild card never has home field (unless their league won the all-star game and they make it to the world series). in 2003, the marlns (nl wild card) had a better record than the cubs (nl central champs) yet the cubs had home field. so yes, we are right lol.

So I guess I'm hoping for:

Win tonight, make the playoffs.

Beat Tampa.

Red Sox beat LAA

Beat Red Sox

Face MIL in the playoffs (the weakest team IMHO)

Celebrate!
