My apologies in advance if there is already a thread for this. If that's the case, mods please merge.

Currently, the Orioles are a game and-a-half behind the Rays for the # 2 wild card spot, and 4 games behind the Rangers for the # 1 wild card spot.

The Royals scored 3 runs in the top of the first inning today against the Indians in Cleveland. The Indians are currently tied with the Orioles at 77-67, and the Royals are a game-and-a-half behind both of these respective squads at 76-69.

The Rays, O's, Indians, Yanks, and Royals are so tightly bunched, every day will see an ebb and flow with one team jumping ahead of others and vice versa. Its gonna make for a roller coaster of a ride for all of us, but it will be a fun three weeks.

Its funny how each win and loss changes everything. A win tonight coupled with a Rays loss and we half a game back. A loss and a Rays win and we are suddenly 2 and a half out and have 2 or more teams in front of us. Crazy times.

In the Royals' entire franchise history (1969 - present), today they did something for only the 2nd time ever ...... they led the game off with a home run and a triple. Alex Gordon hit one out of the park, followed by a triple by Emilio Bonifacio.

The only other time that that had ever happened in their 45-season history was on September 9th of 2011, when (again) Alex Gordon led the game off with a home run, followed by a triple by Melky Cabrera.

The rays tie it up, we go 2.5 back and I think that is all she wrote. Probably is anyhow.

Rays win tonight would sure be a huge blow. We still have 4 games vs. TB on the season though, so as long as we're no more than 2 games back of them when we go there (Sept 20-23), I won't give up hope.

Yeah, it's the Yankees, indians and royals along with rays we're battling though. Royals might take it. They are .5 behind us and will probably leap us tomorrow.

    • They don't have the one and done anymore. I believe it's a 3 game series now.
    • Wondering if Norby is the future 1B and Westburg is traded.
    • Juan Gonzalez won a gold glove one year he was basically a DH.  Seeing how much a media darling Ortiz was, I'm surprised he didn't win one.
    • The entire outfield wall moved back!  I support it just to hear opposing teams' sluggers whine. 
    • Years back I remember when a pitcher (Don't remember his name) was told he'd won a GG.  He responded "Really? I don't even think I'm a good fielder."
    • One way to look at it is that we were three runs away from making the playoffs. We lost opening day 2-1 to Tampa and then we lost to them in extra innings on July 27. If we score two more runs on opening day and one more run in the first nine innings of that extra inning loss, we make the playoffs.
    • I'd be very surprised if they acquire an outfielder unless one of Mullins, Santandar or Hays are traded.  With Stowers and McKenna already in the MLB and Cowser knocking down the door, I think getting an outfielder is very low on the priority list for Elias.   I think next year Stowers will be given a shot at first base, and he will be a 1st/OF player.  I would hope the stupid platoon thing that was done to him this year stops as his splits are fairly even historically.  With Mountcastle and Hays slumping often we need someone with a decent bat who can fill in both positions, and Stowers could fill such a role and get some significant playing time as such.  Vavra is a bit more complicated.  We have a need for a good 2nd baseman, but I'm not sure Vavra is the answer there.  Urias and Mateo look to finish out the ss/3rd positions, and then of course there is Westburg waiting in the wings.  With Odor gone I think Vavra gets more playing time at 2nd and around the infield in general.  But I could also see 2nd base being a place where we bring in another vet, but one better with the bat than Odor.
