Off-day scoreboard watching for Orioles fans

Joy R. Absalon-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Tigers, Athletics and Angels are staggered through the afternoon, and the Yankees and Rays play at night.

The Orioles are .5 games ahead of the Athletics for the first wild card spot, and 2.5 games ahead of the Angels, leaving a magic number of 5 with 6 games to play. They are also 3.5 games up on the Rays.

For the American League East, they are 1.5 games back of the Yankees. The half-games are all going to be cleared today with the O's off and these teams in action.

The Tigers don't really impact the Orioles' playoff chances themselves. I just think it's fascinating that the team with Justin Verlander, Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder might not make the playoffs. They have pulled a game ahead of Chicago.

Matchups for these games:

Royals (Luis Mendoza) @ Tigers (Doug Fister), game underway as of this post

Athletics (Travis Blackley) @ Rangers (Matt Harrison), 2:05pm ET

Mariners (Hisashi Iwakuma) @ Angels (Dan Haren), 3:35pm ET (CCer jobe notes that this is the MLB.TV free game of the day)

Yankees (Ivan Nova) @ Blue Jays (Brandon Morrow), 7:07pm ET

Rays (James Shields) @ White Sox (Jake Peavy), 8:10pm ET
