FWIW, Baseball Prospectus still has our playoff odds as 95.1%
I am pretty sure they meant 9.51%. This team is pathetic and is getting mauled by the Orioles. I have never seen this many people on ONE team play this badly at once, and that includes this April. At least then we had 3 SP that were good. Now we are down to 1.5. Through 5 innings today, this team has 9 hits and 4 runs, and STILL, they are losing.
Literally, they need to finish 6-4 to make the playoffs while battling the Orioles for 7 of those 10 games, and I sincerely think they have almost NO chance of doing that. Unless this team starts scoring 15+ runs a game again or somehow Lester and Beckett can pitch every other day, they are toast. And really - it doesnt matter, b/c does anyone actually think they have ANY shot of beating the Tigers in a 5 game series??
And yes, I am just angry because of course I have already paid for my playoff tickets AND booked my hotel rooms. Stupid team.
