AL Playoff Picture

AL East: Yankees
Al Central: Tigers
AL West: A's
AL Wildcard: White Sox

As for the WS representative, it's tough to say. The best rotations for a postseason are definitely the A's and Tigers. The Yanks have a good 1-3, but no dependable 4th starter and their top 2 (Johnson, Mussina) are old and may struggle on short rest. The White Sox rotation has been crappy as a whole recently. I'd say the A's also have the best bullpen. Offensively, the Yanks are the best, and the Tigers and White Sox could click, but could fall apart also. The A's, despite the common perception of terrible offense, have been batting .274 and scoring 5.2 rpg since the break, so they've been contributing. Given the A's superior defense as well, I think they could make the World Series. If the Yanks rotation can hold up though, they may take it.

I don't think they will because even though the White Sox have struggled I still think they are better than the Twins.

I disagree. Mussina has better numbers and far more experience. If anybody is the ace on that team, it's him.

On a make or break playoff game you'd go to Wang over Mussina or Johnson? This isn't a full season ace, this is about a high pressure game ace.

Alright, check this

AL East: Yankees- after watching the 5 game sweep over weeping boston, New York stamped it's division crown

AL Central: Tigers- only problem is that the White sox have their numbers.

AL West: A's- Dominating their own division 29-15(but 12-13 came from the mariners)

AL Wild Card: Twins- a very dangerous team with liriano back


The angels, rangers, indians, red sox need to plan for next year.
Angels suck lol j/k needed to slip that in
