Not likely by any stretch- but possible-
Mostly in a "Santa Claus might exist" kind of possible- but Hahn has done enough that I'll go into April/May with the irrational optimism that helped me survive 1978-1980, 1986-1989, 1994-1999, etc.
Wildcard? Probably not. But the Royals and Indians will have pitching problems and, personally, I feel the Tigers have made themselves worse. So if everything goes right and wrong for them, there could be a race. It's not likely, but it's more likely than last year.
