On The Edge

The Tigers have the best record in baseball (along with the Yankees), which determines home advantage in the playoffs. However, with only five games left, they're not even certain to win their division. One loss and the Twins could be tied with them. I guess I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth and just be glad they get to keep playing.

An even more interesting race is in the National League's Central Division. St. Louis had a solid lead on the Astros with the season almost over. Then the Cardinals lost six in a row while Houston won six, and now only 2.5 games separate the teams. This is probably the worst division in baseball, since even after their six wins the Astros are only at .500.

After a year of steroids, the possibility of two major record-holders (HRs, Hits) being tainted by scandal and a one-sided affair in interleague play, what Baseball needs now is a sub .500 team in the playoffs., As much as I love the game, have to blame it on having a used car dealer in charge of the league.
