The Orioles sweep the 3 game series over the Royals. The Royals head back home to Kansas City for a 4 game series vs. Seattle Mariners Thursday-Sunday.

Sorry. I'm really hoping the Royals make the playoffs (Playoffs?)

The Royals split the 4 game series with the Mariners. The Royals play the Cardinals in the I-70 Series Monday-Thursday with Games 1 & 2 in K.C. and Games 3 & 4 in St. Louis.

Listened to part of the second game yesterday. Denny Matthews was harsh when taking about the Mariners as a playoff team.

To paraphrase him, he said that there are too many playoff spots of the Mariners are considered in the hunt for a playoff spot, and that nothing he could see from them makes him think they are a playoff team

Royals are still within reach of both the division and the wildcard.

I'm surprised the Angels are in the wildcard race

I think it depends on how you define "in" it. Jays are only 4 out of wildcard but they are by no means in it. Too many teams to leapfrog.

Glad to see the Mariners have grabbed last wildcard. Nice to have some fresh blood come postseason.

Angels are tied with the Mariners a half game behind the Twins, so technically, they are IN the race for the wildcard.

So are the Royals. They're just going thru a rough patch.

I do think they Angels are playing above themselves, tho

I didn't realize they were that close. For some reason I haven't been as into baseball this year.

Saw the 5th/6 baseball game today. Jays beat the Pirates 7-2. Rookie call up won his first game. Pitched pretty well. Last game is next Thursday. With the Jays fortunes this will no doubt be my last.
