It is . . . Getting Interesting

Post by Doctor X » Sun Sep 29, 2013 7:21 pm

It is possible a three-way tie can occur for the Wild Card in the AL. For those not paying attention, the New Wild Card is a "play-in" game between the two non-division winners with the best record. Currently, Pyrrho's Boys have the edge by one game (91-70) whereas the DEVIL Rays and the Steers 'n Queers are (90-71). So if Cleveland loses, and either Tampa or Texas wins, we have a tie. If they both win we have a three-way tie. If they all win, just a two-way tie.

Currently . . . Tampa was destroying Toronto, but Toronto has scored 3. Cleveland leads the Twins 2-0 but Texas is losing 1-0 to the Los Angeles Angels of Orange County and Environs.

Just out of curiosity, if it had ended in a three-way tie, what would have been done?

I knew it, then just tried to explain it on the phone, and I am not sure. Not going to be arsed to look it up, but basically Cleveland and Tampa would play and the loser of that would play Texas. I think. I heard that there was a possibility of Cleveland playing twice.

Fuck it: http://www.cbssports.com/mlb/eye-on-bas ... -scenarios

I am not even going to try to quote it! :shock:

Cleveland is 4 outs away from the end of their season unless they can score at least 3 runs.

"...and that's that."

At least they made it that far.

Now on to our local fantasy football team.
