Red Sox = Ulcer

We are down to the last weekend of the Major League Baseball season. My beloved Red Sox are clinging to the final American League playoff spot by the proverbial skin of their proverbial teeth.

Here is the current standings:

We could realistically finish the season on a four way tie in the wild card race. I’ve no clue how that would be handled. I’m sure there are tie breakers built into the standings, but could they all have to have play off games to make it to the play in game?

Note, three of the four teams are from the AL East. That’s crazy, but it gets worse. Check out the “if it ended today” bracket…

The first team the play in winner will face is yet another AL East team. How insane is that?

Needless to say, go Red Sox.
