Talk about "lack of imagination..." -- I'm talking about the ZiPS figures, not Szymborski or the Orioles. Hardly seems worth running the projections over five years if there's so little variation from year to year for each of those players. Maybe I'm just spoiled by wildly fluctuating careers in baseball sim games... or reality itself.
Wow, I'm shocked to see we're technically still in it.
I basically called it done a couple of losses ago. But how could I forget, it ain't over till it's over!
6 games left, so basically the O's have been in contention for 90 percent of the season. Who'd a thunk?
Well, we're up against it now. Toronto beat the Yankees tonight. There's now only one way the O's can make the playoffs:
1) Sweep the Red Sox
2) Toronto loses three to the Yankees the next three days
3) Seattle loses at least 2 games ([email protected], 4 vs Oak)*
*If Seattle goes 5-1 or better, we would still be OK if Houston loses at least 5 of their last 6 (2vsSea, 4 vs Tex)
4) Angels lose at least 1 more game (2 vs SD, 3 @Dodgers)
