I hope you're right about the 97 wins. Last year it took 95 wins to make the postseason from the AL, and this year it looks like it might be similar. I don't see the Tigers winning as much as you do. Right now it looks like winning the wild card would send the Sox to New York, while winning the Central would send the Sox to Oakland, which will probably have homefield. I would love for the Angels to catch the A's (which pretty much would guarantee the AL Central winner getting homefield in ALCS). Maybe the Sox can help make that happen this weekend, but I don't see it.

Last year the Indians looked unstoppable until the last week of the season. You never know.

95 wins is still looking like what it will take to make the playoffs this year. The Sox need to go 11-4 to get there, which means they need to win 2 of 3 in every series + 3 of 4 vs. Seattle. A bit of a tall order, but by no means impossible, especially considering the way our starters have stepped up.

The key is Oakland. If the Sox take 2 of 3 there, the ball could really be rolling, and a sweep of the Tigers is possible. All 3 Tiger games next week are sold out, so those of you going, be extra loud! I'm also really glad that yesterday's loss in the standings was made up today. The Sox can't afford to lose any more ground.

I like the difficulty of our opponents schedules, especially that nasty road trip the Twins start tomorrow and that 1 day trip to Baltimore for the Tigers. It also will help a lot if the Royals play some serious spoilers for us the last week of the season.

I hope it doesn't all come down to Vazquez vs. Santana on Oct. 1st, though if it did come down to that, my guess is Contreras would go on 3 days rest.

Something the Sox have going for them is that they won both of the coin tosses so they'd host Minny or Det if they were tied. Liriano going down is big as well. If Liriano is done and they miss Santana taking 2/3 in the Metrodump isn't as tall of an order.

I really hope your right! I have basically the same expections beside Detriot losing more games going down the strech because they have 6 more with the red hot Royals.

That is definiately optimistic... but hey, I'm not complaining.

Let's just go all out and say the Sox will reach 100 wins!:tongue:

:mg: 13-3 would be great, but highly unlikely. Sorry to be a downer. More like maybe 10-6.

There is absolutely no way we miss Santana in that last series unless the twins have clinched.

I agree. There is no way the Twins won't throw him at us - they hate us and want us to lose, even if it means using up their best pitcher right before the post season starts.

Crazy. If they've clinched by then, there's no way they would pitch him in that series. Winning game one of the playoffs (in a 5 game series) would be huge, and with Santana it's very likely.

minnesota could be in a real spot at the end of the season

lets say best case

last game of the year between us and minnesota

winner gets the central loser wild card

if we throw garland we still go vaz/buehlre/freddy/contreras game 1 (and yes if vaz throws 3 more like he has the last 3 i very much consider him for game 1)

minnesota may concede that game for the wildcard in order to throw santana twice in round 1. Remember that, they need him to throw early so he can throw often!

13-3 would be nice but what the hell makes you think they will go 13-3 when we have been below .500 since the break and our historical woes in oakland?
