I was surprised to read this is the Yankees' first division title since 2012.

Didn't realize it had been that long; weird to think the Orioles (2014) and Blue Jays (2015) had won the division more recently than the Yankees.

Reports out now that Domingo German won't pitch again this year.  Domestic violence investigation.

7 out of the last 15 games are against the Angels.  Ohtani is getting surgery and is out for the rest of the season. 


Trout injured, too

Upton out, too.

Magic number for the Division is 1.  Oakland beating the Rangers 6-0 through 6 tonight.

Astros clinch AL home field if they go 6-2, regardless of what the Yankees do

FIFY to add the WS home field.

Astros still need one more win to secure at least the 2 seed and a home ALDS.  Rotation set for the rest of the season with Cole and Greinke going in Seattle.  Miley and Urquidy will go Thursday and Friday in Anaheim, an audition for the postseason roster.  Hinch basically said Miley is on the bubble and will have to prove himself on Thursday.  Verlander on Saturday, and if Cole has a shot at 20 wins, he'll finish up the season on Sunday.  I presume if Sunday means nothing, it'll be a bullpen day and Cole will start Game 1 of the ALDS.

And according to me a half hour ago, Dr. Cabrera.

Happy Victory Monday!

As you may have heard,  Astros wrapped up the AL West yesterday.  They remain 0.5 games ahead of the Yankees for the AL (and MLB) best record.  Their magic number to finish better than Minn is 1.

The Astros hit the road with  a 3 2 game midweek set against the hated Mariners then close the season with 3 against the Angels.   Pitching rotation can be found in the past above.

NY also finishes on the road.  They have 2 in Tampa then 3 in Arlington. 

The Twins magic number for the central is 3.  They get Detroit and KC.

The AL WC race remains tight.  The A's are in good position to host the WC game.  They hold a 2 game lead over TB and Cle who still have identical records.

Oak: @LAA(2), @Sea(4)
TB: Bos (1), NYY(2), @Tor(3)
Cle: @CWS(2), @Was(3)

Atl and Min start the week with 96 wins. If they reach the century mark there will be 4 100 win teams and 4 100 loss teams. Oak has 94 with 6 to play so they could do it as well.

I thought yours was what you were setting as the rotation.  Didn't realize you were citing anyone.

My bad.

Well, I read it somewhere.  It wasn't Twitter, but it wasn't just my opinion.

Point of order...they play two in Seattle then four in Anaheim.

The Astros now have a magic number of 1 to clinch a better intradivision record than the Dodgers: six game lead with six to play for both teams.  Astros hold a 2-game lead over the Dodgers overall.

Is that the tiebreaker when there's no head to head?

Doesn't Verlander start the first playoff game regardless of what happens Sunday? Is Hinch going to move Cole ahead of Verlander in the playoff rotation?
