The Twins sit a half-game behind Chicago in the AL wild card race, and 3.5 up on Boston. After that you're getting into the Blue Jays and Angels, and they're all but finished. Crazier things have happened, I suppose, but it's probably down to Chicago, Minnesota and Boston.
Baltimore is 20.5 games out of first place but just 18 out in the wild card race! Isn't that exciting? I love this part of the season, where we're playing for nothing and all I care about anymore is Rodrigo Lopez shutting his yap, Markickass continuing to kick ass, or the odd home run from Corey or Brian Bob. It's liberating to no longer really care at all whether or not the game is won. It's all about the individuals now.
Of course, it'd be a lot cooler if we were contending for anything, but ha ha ha ha.
