    Magic # 35
    Games left:
    Astros 37
    Rangers 39
    Angels 38
    If Astros go 18-19
    Rangers must go 23-16
    Angels must go 24-14

    85.6% probability of winning division.

    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Blow Jays come through again. Sweet! I'd like to see them put this division away by Labor Day.

    Go from 33 to 0 in less than two weeks? You're a bold thinker.

    Toronto is probably the best team in the AL. Their Run differential is much better than the other teams.

    We still need the Yankees to win the division. They are a much better matchup for us than the Blue Jays and all of their right handed bats in my opinion. Thoughts?

    Playoffs, anything can happen.

    But yeah, a date with the Blue jays doesn't sound very fun in the first round.

    Toronto can start losing after they sweep the rangers.

    My thoughts exactly. In the long run, I want the Yankees all day everyday over the Blue Jays, but for right now, GO LEAFS!

    Any matchup in the playoffs is going to be tough. Can't pick and choose who you face unfortunately.

    I think he means establish a sizeable (almost insurmountable) lead by labor day. Up to 5 games now pending tonight's Rangers and Angels games. I think it'll be tough to put away both the Rangers and Angels that early just due to the sheer amount of head to head games that are left. Astros play the Rangers 7 more times before the season ends.

    You gotta feel just a little bad for them, dont you?

    The last time Toronto made the playoffs, Jurassic Park was the #1 movie in the country.

    Next 12 games against Twins, Seattle, & Oakland. If the Stros go say at least 8-4 or better, they can get close.

    Also I cannot stand when they are called the Halos. Is it really that hard to say Angels? Same number of syllables too.
