KCR: 163 - 60 - 54 = 49
SOX: 163 - 59 - 51 = 53
MIN: 163 - 56 - 51 = 57

Thank you E-LO, Wunsch, & Marte!
And of course The Big Hurt!


Let's get them tomorrow & hopefully the Minny Mice will lose again, & the SOX will be just 2 back in the Magic Number column.

GO WHITE SOX!


I plan to use this thread to track the race.

I think the first team to get to 30 will win the division.

Ahhhhhh ... it feels so good to do the update today :D:

Magic Numbers

SOX: 163 - 61 - 54 = 48
KCR: 163 - 60 - 54 = 49
MIN: 163 - 58 - 54 = 51

Any combination of 48 SOX wins or losses by both (KC & MIN) & the SOX win the division!

I had a feeling that KC would struggle vs TAM because Pinella has them playing better of late (winning 7 of last 10).

As you can see MIN is still within striking distance having won 7/10 as well.

For you sCrUB fans:
SOX .530 winning %, sCrUBs .518 winning %.

The rest of the way:
I think the SOX will continue to do well at home: 10-3 last 13.
2-1 vs A's, 1-3 @ ANA, 2-1 @ TEX, 2-1 vs ANA, 3-1 vs TEX, 1-2 @ NYY
1-2 @ DET, 1-1 @ BOS, 2-1 vs CLE, 3-1 vs MIN, 1-2 @ BOS, 1-2 @ MIN
2-1 vs KCR, 2-1 vs NYY, 3-1 @ KCR

27-21 reducing their Magic Number to ..
SOX: 163 - 88 - 59 = 16

Outside of H2H we need KC & MN to lose 16 more.

KC best case will pick up 7 losses betw NYY & MN. 5 more bet ANA & TEX. 1 vs ARI.
4 more betw CLE & DET. 17 total.

MN best case will pick up 15 losses betw DET, CLE, ANA, KCR, & TEX.

It's definitely a dog fight the rest of the way. We may need to sweep MIN in 1 of the series.

I'm only updating this thread when the SOX win! :angry:

But I do have something to say:

Jon G:
Aug: SX 0-2, 10R, 10ip -> just 2 starts

That's 2 bad starts in a row for Jon.
I am concerned. :?:
