Around The Majors: Octoberfest and The Playoff Push

- With their rally, the Yanks get in also.

Imagine Baltimore and Oakland win their divisions and it's Yanks/Rangers in a 1 game playoff...

Forget Oakland. They have to sweep Texas. Baltimore has a shot, though it's probably no better than 30%. Unfavorable series matchups.

They remind me of the Braves. Good team, but not good enough to win it all.

A's and astros had the same record on june 1st on 22-31

A's went 69-37 since

18 rookies (looking at the preseason BA top 100 the only contributing members are cespedes and parker). Surprising lots of off the radar rookies stepped up or rookies that were former top 100 prospects but fell off lists (carter, norris)

5 rookies currently in rotation, has lost their top 3 sp's

lead mlb in HR since ASB with 116, 2nd in al runs's since ASB.

2nd lowest payroll in mlb, $100,000 difference with padres.

Among potential playoffs next highest payrolls are orioles and reds who around around $80 mill...around $30 mill difference

It's amazing.
And the shame of it is, they're still not drawing at all.  Less than 60K total for their weekend series.

Eagles/Indiana/Mets/Villanova: it's a long story

Baltimore's worst nightmare. Boston lies down, while TB plays. Baltimore out of tie for first by the end of the night.

Tampa Bay wins and stays alive.   Hopefully, Texas can make some noise in Oak and make this thing interestng.

Trout = MVP. And i don't think it should even be close between him and Cabrera. Amazingly, a Triple crown doesn't even approach what Trout did this year offensively and on the basepaths while playing a premium position extremely well.
