    For the past week, all I've heard is how easy the schedule is for the Red Sox after the series with the Yankees. And I said to myself, all that blathering is going to come back to haunt them. And it did. Losing the the ORIOLES????? JFC. I thought the loss I saw on Friday was the biggest game of the season and they choked. They've continually one upped themselves since Friday night. I see tickets to the Tuesday's Wild Card game in my MLB Ballpark app. I scheduled a 4:30pm creative review meeting for Tuesday because I know I won't have to go to Fenway.

    I don’t blame you, anything involving the Mariners being a half game back can’t be worth watching to normal humans.

    Oh, and the Mariners have won 9 out of their last 10 and sit half a game back of Boston but that’s not important.

    (I understand the reasoning why it’s just funny to me)

    The 2021 Mets: No team in Major League history has spent as much time (103 days) in first place and finished with a losing record.

    That was a fun run. It was my first full year down in Colorado, and I remember World Series tickets selling for crazy amounts of money. A co-worker was a season-ticket holder, and paid for something like 6-7 years of season tickets by selling his tickets for Games 3 and 4. He held onto his tickets for Game 5 because he wanted to at least see the Rockies play in the World Series once. He is still waiting.

    One crazy Rockies fact: they have played 28 seasons, been to the World Series once, and made the postseason five times, but they have yet to win a division title.
    The Florida/Miami Marlins came into the Majors the same year and have won 2 World Series titles (1997 and 2003) but also have not yet won a divisional crown.

    I’m not holding onto anything, this is the Mariners we’re talking about.

    It’s possible for there to be a five way tie for the wildcard.

    https://nesn.com/2021/09/reddit-user...-five-way-tie/

    MLB’s tiebreakers only have scenarios for up to four teams. Unless they have unpublished tiebreakers, they will literally be making it up on the fly like the NHL did with the unused game 83 rule a couple years back.

    With Seattle winning yesterday, Oakland needs to win the next two to keep it alive.
