Tampa Bay is now mathematically eliminated from taking the AL East. Yeah, yeah, a real shocker but they are the first team to suffer a postseason "causality".

Still in the running for the wild card though.

Baltimore will probably be next. A Boston win and Baltimore loss seals their fate. After that it will likely be the Giants or *gasp* the White Sox.

Baltimore's tragic number is actually three; the White Sox are at five.

A Boston win and Baltimore loss places their records at 84-55 and 59-78, respectively with 25 games to go for Baltimore. Baltimore could theoretically tie Boston. Boston currently leads the season series 9-5 with 4 games left between the two clubs. So it is mathematically possible for the teams to tie and have the same head-to-head record.

Three it is...

With Cleveland losing last night, the Sox stay alive for another day.Anything other than a Cleveland loss and Sox win means the Sox are eliminated from taking the AL Central.

Every team is mathematically still in it for the Wild Card.

All we need is a nice 22 game winning streak combined with a Tigers 20 game losing streak and an Indians 22 game losing streak and we're right in this thing! (Teal not necessary)

Florida is now mathematically eliminated from winning the NL East, the first NL postseason casualty. A loss tonight knocks them out of the Wild Card.

In the AL, Baltimore is right on the edge. Anything other than a Oriole win and Yankee loss knocks them out of the Wild Card. Both teams are off today though. A Kansas City loss will send their elimination number to zero but with the Yankees off today, they will stay alive for another day.

In the NL, the Giants and Nationals are now mathematically eliminated from claiming their respective divisions. The Nationals' elimination number now stands at zero so anything other than Nationals wins and Padres losses knock them out. A full eight teams control their own playoff destiny in the NL.

Anything other then Angels losses and Texas or Oakland wins will eliminate either team from clinching the AL West. Same situation in the East with Boston and Toronto.

Texas eliminated from taking the AL West, the first casualty in that division. The NL Central is now the only division where every team is mathematically still alive.

Only six teams now control their own destiny in the NL, down from eight just yesterday.

In the National League, San Francisco's elimination number stands at zero. Only five teams now control their own playoff destiny. And yes, a Cubs win and Astros loss would still keeps the Astros mathematically alive, 14 games behind the Cubs in the middle of September, 22 games under .500.

The Twins are now eliminated from taking the AL Central. Their elimination number stands at zero for the postseason altogether. The A's elimination number is at zero as well. Anything other than wins and Yankee losses knocks them both out.

In the NL, the Giants are now completely out of it. The Astros' elimination number stands at zero. There are still five teams that control their own playoff destiny in the NL.

Toronto sweeps Boston but it is a bitter pill to swallow as New York sweeps Baltimore to ensure the Blue Jays will be watching the postseason from the couch.

Angels and Indians clinch their respective divisions yesterday so the Mariners and Tigers are out of the running for the divisional title (obviously). Both are still in the running for the Wild Card though. Seattle's elimination number stands at zero so anything other than Mariner wins and Yankee losses sends them home. A Yankee win and Tiger loss sends Detroit home.

Nine teams in the NL still in the running for the postseason.

AL teams in the postseason are essentially set. All the Yankees have to do is win one game and they are in. If for some insane reason the Yankees can't go at least 1-5 to finish the season, a single loss by Detroit and Seattle also guarantees a postseason berth.

The NL is still up in the air. Six games left and a full NINE teams are still mathematically alive for the postseason. That's over half the league! And all those teams have a shot of taking their respective division, minus the Dodgers who can only get in as a Wild Card at this point. Five teams still have full control of their playoff chances (in other words, they don't need to rely on other teams to lose to get them in).
