Let the almost playoff begin

20 posts in this topic

The stage is set perfectly for the Twins. If they can sweep the Sox and then take care of the Royals, they'll have momentum going into the playoffs.

..and there is a little handicap with it. it's like a seven game series and basically we are trailing two games to zero and also are about the equivalent of being behind in game three in about the 7th inning. It's go time.

Wife's going to the game tomorrow. She won't quit talking about it.

I would just like them to make the SOX sweat a little. I don't think they have enough gas left to get it done, but then again the SOX don't seem to want to win the division either. Hopefully it is a fun series.

What would happen if at the end of the regular season the Sox and Twins are tied in the division?? Do they have a 1 game playoff or do they go by division record?? I know the Sox do have a make-up game so I am sure that will come into play.

one game playoff at chicago because we lost the coin flip

Right you are!

Worst case scenario for the Sox, barring not making the playoffs (lol) would be playing Detroit in Chicago the day after the season ends. Then, if tied with Twinks, a one game playoff for the division, winner take all, in Chicago because of the coin flip. We would probably limp into the playoffs not having the luxury of setting our pitching rotation and would most likely start the playoffs with our Number 3 pitcher. Let the games begin. This could come down to a battle of attrition, whoever is left standing after 15 rounds is the winner!

Regardless if the Twins, or the Sox win the Division, congrats to both teams, for being over achievers this year, and making the year fun and interesting to watch!

I am Thankfull we have a dome, or this series might have been delayed by a day, causing even more headaches. Yes it is supposed to rain tonight, as it is doing now. Going forward in the new park, get ready for a lot of double headers.

I can second that Wandering. Our two teams were left at the bottom of the scrap heap this year by all the so called experts. Some even thought the Twinks and Sox might get passed by the Royals, and everybody thought the Kitties and Tribe would be the 800 lb gorillas in the race, boy were they wrong. It does somehow always seem to boil down the Chicago and Minnesota!

And Gary, I can tell you to stock up on the Advil after our series was drown out with Detroit and we may now have to play a game after the season was supposed to be over. I hate the carpet but would love a roof over our heads.

Ya at least a retractable one for sure.

I agree both teams achieved more than were expected, and both have had issues down the stretch. Which ever team wins, hopefully they go deep into the playoffs and make it entertaining.

Windy I know, have the bottle right on the desk in front of me.

At home is the spirits of choice. Now the only thing left is hopefully no storms tonight or heavy rains as I have Direct TV and when there is storms around I lose signal. It happened early in the season as well as later in the summer, both during Twins games. I have a radio standing or sitting by.

Gotta have the game tonight. Need a bit of confidence with them trotting Blackburn out tomorrow. I don't have much faith in him. SWEEP would really put the heat on, but 2 out of 3 gives us a chance. I want the SOX to have to win vs. Cliff Lee on Sunday!! I seem to remember not many years back the Twins winning the Central on the last day of the Season vs. KC when Detroit collapsed!

It seems like every outing he has he gives up at least one homer.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
