Not trying to get a head of myself but 32 is the Sox magic number.
Royals and Twins are at 34.

But here is something..... The Sox winnings % for rest of the season and what is the maxium winning % for the 2nd place in order for the Sox win the Central.

Sox__.484__.516__.548__.580__.612__.645__.677__.71 0
KC___.485__.515__.545__.576__.606__.636__.666__.69 7
Min__.500__.531__.563___.594__.625__.656__.718__.7 18.

I looked at this to see how much of a chance there was that this would come down to the final weekend at KC. Looking the schedule, the Twins have Detroit 7 out of their final nine games. Hopefully the Tigers will be motivated to avoid the 62 Mets, but I think there is a very good chance this division will come down to that final weekend in Kansas City and the Twins in Detroit.

WinningUgly! gave me this site:


which according to them our "clinch number" is 28 (with the loss by KC). They say they have a better system than the normal magic number.

Anyways..yeah it'll be tough to win this division with the schedule we have and the schedules KC and MINN has, but it's our fault for not beating those terrible teams when we had the chance.

163-Sox wins - KC losses, right?

Or do I have that backwards?

163 (or 162 if you want to figure in a tie for first) - 69 (Sox Wins - 62 (Royals losses).

I like that site. What they are figuring in is the effects of games where the first and second place teams play each other.
