Yes, and so do the White Sox & Tigers, which means we have to win the West. The M's are playing (.660) baseball this month, but so are the A's, as you mentioned.Originally Posted by ichiro262
A look at the AL Wild Card:
East Boston (.611)
Central Detroit (.671)
West Oakland (.547)
New York (.575)
We are four games away from the half way point in the season. There is still a bunch of baseball left. Boston looks strong, as well as Detroit and Chicago and Oakland. Even Texas continues to pound the ball and their pitching is better. Will Texas wilt in the summer heat ? Can Detroit continue this pace ? They have confidence and they know they can win now, which is dangerous. The Yankees are a question mark, with their age and injuries, but you cant' count them out. Boston is smokin' hot. Minnesota is playing good, as well as Toronto. Even a Bay Area (knock on wood) Earthquake couldn't slow down the A's, it seems.
The good news is the Mariners will get to play all these teams in the second half of the season, which includes road trips back East, during the dog days of summer. We have some youth and a good bench so lets get on that magic carpet and ride !
