You left out a big name. As I read on the scroll on MLB network last night, during the game that would not end (paraphrasing):
"Clay Buchholz will throw an inning in the Instructional League on Monday, and rejoin the team ON WEDNESDAY."
The last game of the season is Wednesday.
A bullpen game, with Buchholz as the first man to the mound. I would try to turn two Aceves innings into 2 Buchholz innings, because, if there is a 1-game playoff, I want Aceves fresh out of the bullpen. If the Sox are up after 6 innings of Buchholz/Wakefield/Weiland/Miller, then Aceves-Bard-Papelbon go in to close it out as per normal. If tied or behind, let the scrubs take it on the chin and/or wait for the offense to get it done.

got a question for you man, what happens if the rays and the sox has same record after 162nd game ? Rays would win the WC spot based on regular season series against the RS which is I think 13-7 ?? ( like the 06 Yanks / Red Sox tied for AL East but Yanks wins the Division due having better record )

One game playoff in Tampa.

For example, if the Red Sox and Yankees each had 90 wins and tied for the division lead and the 2nd place team in another division had 92 wins, they would have a one game playoff. If the best 2nd place team had 88 wins there would be no one game playoff because they are both going to the playoffs anyway.

Holyshit, not sure if I can take that kind of shit, I am at loss of words I mean 28 games or so ago we were up in both AL East / WC now to this kind of shit... I don't know if I can forgive this team for totally bombing out like this , if 163rd game does happen then I don't want anyone to come near me LOL! day is gonna be filled with stress and me being in a foul mood!!

What on Earth makes you think this team is going to play well enough over the next 2 days to make it to a 1 game playoff?

**** the Rays because they play in the worst place in the world. I wouldn't even call it the asshole of the world because that would be an insult to assholes. All I know is those inbred ****ing loser fans can't even show up when a post season birth is on the line. They don't deserve to even have a franchise. In fact, they don't deserve not to have a nuclear bomb dropped on them.
And **** the Red Sox. You weak assed ****ing pussies better find a way to out a few decent games together and you know, actually win. Show some ****ing guts you spineless fairies. I've ****ing had it with the way you all fall into the fetal position when things aren't going well. Hey Carl Crawford? We know you suck but I expect you start playing at a level above Challenger League baseball starting right now shithead. Adrian Gonzalez? This isn't San Diego anymore dipshit. We aren't going to marvel at your stats and ignore that you shit the bed more often in the clutch than MrNE does after a Tequila binge. Hey Lester? Man up ****face. You've faced much tougher things than this so your pussiness in completely inexcusable. Beckett? Put the Big Mac down Tex. You're supposed to be an Ace, right? What happened to the Josh Beckett who kicked ass in 2007? Did you have a sex change operation? I don't care, borrow a sack if your is missing but when this team gets to the post season you better ****ing SHOW UP.
The rest of you? Take your heads out of your asses. You cannot lose to the Orioles ONE MORE TIME. Not happening. Not ever again. Starting tonight, this shit stops.
Play like the ****ing Red Sox will you? 2004 changed everything you assclowns are not going to reverse THAT mojo by choking. Nope. Ain't happening.Not now.
NOT ****ing EVER.
