    This is me just worried. We have got a big series of 22 games where we face all AL teams we have to face the Orioles and the Rays very soon. These games are so important to us, because they could really be the difference in playing in October and not playing in October. I am a man who worries a lot. And seeing as we have to face the Rays six more times, and us ahead only by 4 games. I see that as right to worry.

    Yes, you generally face "all AL teams" after Interleague play has concluded.

    Rays (and A's) off on a Sunday? Is this normal? I can't ever remember any team having an off day on Sunday...at least not the Yanks.

    I think it has something to do with the Republican convention in Tampa but I can't figure out why they just couldn't schedule the Rays to play on the road.

    This is what I don't understand. I imagine the convention was scheduled well before MLB made it's schedule

    They needed the Trop on Sunday for the convention so they played Oakland Thursday, Friday and Saturday instead of Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Its really not a big deal.

    Nice job Yankees. Keep it going in the homestand. We need winning momentum heading to House of Pain Southeast at the Trop in Tampa.

    The new Wild Card one-game-playoff thing is a complete crock.

    That is all.

    Any explanation for the Rays chances being 50% better than Baltimore when they are only 1/2 game up in the win column and have the more difficult remaining schedule?

    They're the better team than the O's.

    It's based on simulations, which take into account run differential when projecting future W/Ls. I'm sure there's more to it than that, but mostly it's just the fact that Tampa should be where they are in the standings, based on run differential. Baltimore should not.

    I dunno. I get tired of teams that don't win their division subsequently playing in the World Series. And, a one-game play-in is going to force the Wild Card team to burn a top line pitcher while their opponent in the first round enjoys a day off. It puts the Wild Card at a significant disadvantage, which to me, is appropriate.

    Now, the fact that the Wild Card then hosts Games 1 and 2 in the LDS is a complete crock. I suspect they'll fix that next year.

    From what I remember when they announced this, I believe this is a one year blip as the schedule had already been announced and they couldn't adjust it. I believe for 2013 and going forward it will go back to the 2-2-1 format.

    Yep I heard the same thing. The 2-3 format is just a one year thing. Next year they'll probably end the regular season a week earlier. 2-2-1 is definetly back next year.

    I'm probably in the minority but I like the addition of the second WC team and I'm ok with the one game playoff. I felt the division had been devalued in recent years. I was putoff in 2010 watching Girardi manage like the division was meaningless. I hated seeing this and I hated "settling" for the wild card. IMO your first goal should always be to win your division, and then go from there. They've made the wild card team have a tougher road now and are rewarding division winners again. I like it.
