I could be wrong, but I think the “E” next to Cleveland in the standings kinda says that.

Well, their magic number did get reduced to 9 today, but they lost to Washington so did not reduce to 8. Even if the Twins lose 2 games in the division series, 3 games in the league championship series, and 3 games in the World Series, that only adds to 8, so I think the Twins lead is safe. *Whew*

A mistake made more than once starts to look like a decision.

I think you just broke the system.

"We have to start the world series over because one of the teams no longer made the play offs based on their record."

And if that happened, the Twins might amass more losses...

While i'm thinking about it, who else made the play offs?

(i suppose i can look for myself... Someone asked me about the Cubs a few days ago and i didn't know)
