Latest News

  • There's rain in the Minneapolis area, so we might be waiting awhile to get this game in. It would have been much better had the game not been rescheduled, as the forecast is much better tonight.

AL Games of Interest

(LGT 91-win Scenario/Results) - revised it up a bit. If the Indians win today, worst-case scenario is that they have to play a tiebreaker or tiebreakers with Texas and/or Tampa Bay. So 91 wins will ensure the Indians play past tomorrow.

  • LA Angels at Texas (-1.0), 12:05 PM (Garrett Richards vs Derek Holland)
  • Tampa Bay (0.0) at Toronto, 1:07 PM (Chris Archer vs JA Happ)
