Your wild card leaders

Posted at 8:48 AM on August 10, 2006 by Ben Tesch (3 Comments)

Well, they're back! Kansas City pulled out a 9th-inning comeback over Boston, and the Yankees beat the White Sox, leaving the Twins with a 1/2 game lead in the wild race after beating Detroit. From this point on it's all in the Twins hands. The next question is: Who to root for? Detroit plays Chicago and Boston in its next two series.

We also still play the White Sox 9 more times, the Yankees 3 more, Detroit 4 more, and Boston 3 more.

root for everybody. It doesn't matter if detroit wins or loses, if we win the same night, we gain a game on somebody. We're in the driver's seat

Root for everyone? What are you, some kind of do-gooder baseball fan? We're not going to win out the rest of the season.

Normally I don't like to, but I'm hoping the Red Sox keep losing... they seem more dangerous, and since we play the White Sox 9 more times, we control our own destiny with those.
