      Colon’s season is right out of ‘Damn Yankees’.He can’t be in possession of his mortal soul anymore.

      That placenta treatment stuff he did must be some kind of miracle cure.

    I hate to feel optimistic, but looking overall, the Tribe has to be a favorite to make the playoffs…

    Tampa Bay has 11 games vs Texas(4), Yankees(4), and Baltimore(3) with 3 against Minn.
    Baltimore has 10 games vs Boston(6) and Tampa (4) with 3 vs Toronto
    Texas has 8 games vs Oakland(1) KC (3) Tampa (4) with (7) vs Houston/LA
    New York has 5 games vs Boston(1) Tampa (4) and 9 vs SF, Houston, Toronto
    Lastly KC has 4 games vs Detroit(1) Texas(3) and 6 vs CHW,Sea

    While we have 3 vs KC… if we win that series, I cannot see how we miss the playoffs. with 3 more vs CHW. 4 vs Houston and 4 vs Minn… we should win at least 7 of those games I would think…

    All the other teams have to beat each other up so much, I do not see any of them really running up a huge win streak. None are really burning it up, with only KC being better than 5-5 at 6-4 over the last 10 games…

    We are 1 game behind Tampa for the second Wildcard, and only 1.5 behind Texas for the first wildcard. I honestly feel we will be the first wildcard and get a home game. With our very good home record 45-30,

    It sure seems like we should be able to advance to the Division series at least. Something only die-hards would have thought 6 months ago…

    Well I am ready to buy my Playoff tickets… Are you???

    (btw, am I the only one who groans whenever the announcers say something like this… Jimenez in three starts in September has yet to give up an earned run… as what happens next? He gave up an earned run…)

    let’s just put one foot in front of the other and win the next one….
