Indians host Philly for one more today.

Then they have the White Sox and Nationals on the road.

If you're the Twins, you have to assume Cleveland sweeps Chicago - based on recent play they don't lose to bad teams. Period.

The Nationals may very well have wrapped up the Wild Card by then, although they still might be playing to host that play-in game. That might play in the Twins favor, but Cleveland matches up with Washington very well.

I see Cleveland losing 1 game. Twins have got to win at least 3 of the next 7. On paper, they should be able to do that. Still have to win between the lines though. Detroit took 2 of 3 from the Twins in a big spot a month ago.

Lol, possible and likely are entirely different things. Not to mention, people have been saying things like this since July, and still the Twins lead.

This view paints pretty much the worse case scenario, not exactly a good bet.

I guess that Berrios and Rogers have to be taken off the post-season roster now after that performance. :)

It's great to get out of the cellar ... as long as you bring something with you.
