Just to show how big of a win it was yesterday, we were sitting at 45% to win WC while Twins were at 49% yesterday. But this morning on coolstandings, we're up to 53 and Twins down to 38.

Ehhh, Its cool, but the games still have to be played out, The only time ill pay attention to a percentage is when its either 100% and we clinched or 0% and we were eliminated

I've been following CoolStandings for the entire season. Even though I've spoken to the sites stat guys, I'm not really shockingly impressed. I think they've simplified several things and don't take park factors into account well.

I like RIOT Standings a lot better. http://riot.ieor.berkeley.edu/~baseball/detail_calc.html

90% chance that the Tigers win the division? There is are 30 games left for the White Sox and they are only 4.5 behind the Tigers. There is no way there is a 90% chance that the Tigers win the division. Even the most die-hard Tigers fan wouldn't argue that.
