  1. No, we would have picked #4, leaping Boston due to a tie-breaker. Detroit would have still edged us out for #3.
  2. Now that we have a higher pick than the Nationals, it wouldn't shock me at all to see them instigate a one time lottery.
  3. Yes, no tiebreak games. https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/mlb-playoffs-2020-how-tiebreakers-work-for-postseason-seeding-in-60-game-season/
  4. I thought I had heard earlier there would be no tiebreaker makeups this season. Anyone know for sure?
  5. The lowest we could go is sixth. And the only way we could drop that low is if we win and Arizona loses. And right now Arizona is winning 5-0.
  6. 60% chance of rain in Kansas City tomorrow afternoon. If we lose and that game is rained out, we leap the Tigers.😁
  7. Yep. If we hadn't won that meaningless finale in Boston we would be in a position where a loss tomorrow would clinch the third pick.
  8. Yeah, I caught that the second I posted it, thus why I edited it.
  9. Yes, Rockies losing would be better. Detroit winning keeps us alive for the third pick. We're guaranteed no worse than the sixth pick now with Washington winning a double header.
  10. Yeah, we end up playing two more games than Detroit so the unbalanced schedule this season due to Covid creates some interesting subplots. What would have been very interesting is what if Detroit had played two more games than us, and Detroit had finished 25-35 and we had finished 24-34. In the "games behind" column, we would have finished tied. However, their percentage would have been .417 while our percentage would have been .414. Thus, even though we finished tied in "games behind" and they own the tiebreaker, we would have officially finished behind them and would have received a higher draft pick. Yes, that was funny about the link. I hadn't noticed that.
  11. Detroit only has a one game lead on us, not two. Refer to the site that fansince posted above. You're looking at the loss column instead of overall percentage. If the Orioles lose twice, they will finish 24-36. If Detroit wins twice, they will finish 24-34. Thus Detroit would have a better record.
  12. You're right. I meant two losses.
  13. With two games to play, the Orioles could still end up picking anywhere from 3rd to 10th. To pick 3rd they would have to lose their final two games while Boston and Detroit win their final two games and Washington wins one of their final three games. We currently have the sixth pick as we jumped Arizona yesterday to move up from seventh. If we were to win our final two games we could drop to 10th with one win by Arizona and two wins by Kansas City, Colorado, and Seattle.
  14. Moved up another notch with tonight's loss combined with Kansas City's victory over St. Louis. We now own the sixth pick. A loss in the finale against Boston moves us up to at least fifth, ahead of the Red Sox. Victories by Detroit and Arizona would move us up to the third pick. I hate seeing us lose but it's intriguing to know we can possibly leap from the eighth pick to the third pick in one three game series.
  15. Moved ahead of the Nationals tonight. Now have the seventh pick. If we lose out, we'll move up to at least fifth (and at least fourth as long as neither Kansas City or Detroit sweeps the other in their final series). Could even move up to third as well with two Arizona wins which is very possible with them closing against Texas and Colorado.
