So what's the new over/under on how many wins the AL Central champ or wild card winner will have? 93? 94?
Which means that if the Tigers weren't dead in the water already, they are now. To win 93 games, Detroit would need to finish the season with a 31-4 record. BTW, that team is currently 3 games below .500.
And the Yankees? Well, I won't count them out yet, but it's definitely uphill. To get to 93 wins, they'll need to go on a 27-10 roll. Even if two of the Rays, Red Sox, White Sox and Twins collapse to only 88 wins, they need to finish 23-14. If the fat lady isn't singing, she sure as hell is listening for her cue.
Seriously - low 90s for the Twins or Sox? Who woulda guessed that? Maybe someone who realized that the midwest is the land of giants. Which brings us to today's iPhone photo from the Twins Geek Family's Summer Expetition. Enjoy!
