According to ESPN, KC is on top of the AL Central because of a few percentage points. When ESPN showed the Wild Card standings, they only showed the White Sox and Twins from our division. So if the playoffs started this morning, (8/30/03), Would KC win the division, or would we have a 1 game playoff type thing?

first of all, the playoffs aren't starting tomorrow - but if they did, MLB would have to make sure KC has played the same number of games as us. We've played 2 more games than them - one W, one L - that's wh ythere's the difference in percentage points. Also, we have more wins than them - and that's the # that counts at the end of the year.

Exactly. If the regular seasonn were ending today, the Royals would have to make up their missing games and then they would decide who goes to the playoffs.
