Oakland and Boston could both clinch berths in the ALCS today.

Yes, the Rays are going with Jeremy Hellickson (74 ERA+) in a must-win game.

(Both games on TBS)

  • Oakland at Detroit, 5:07 PM (Dan Straily vs Doug Fister) - OAK 2-1
  • Boston at Tampa Bay, 8:37 PM (Jake Peavy vs Jeremy Hellickson*) - BOS 2-1

*I'm not one to have a bone to pick with Maddon given all the success he's had over the years but....Jeremy Hellickson? Really?? Hellickson ended 2013 with a 74 ERA+. Ubaldo Jimenez in 2012 had a 72 ERA+.
