The Yankees have a pretty easy schedule -- aside from 6 games against the Red Sox, they only play the Royals, White Sox, Blue Jays, Devil Rays, and Orioles from here out.

Yeah, I took a look at Minnesota's remaining schedule and then traded Lowe for Santana to a Red Sox fan 2 weeks ago. This guy thought he was getting a steal because of what Lowe did last year and Santana was coming off a couple bad starts.

If you go to baseballprospectus.com, which is a graet baseball site anyway, you can click on "Five new stat reports" on the left side, then go down to "Postseason Odds Report." The column titled "SOS" is Strength of Schedule.

Minnesota's SOS is .456.
The Cubs' SOS is .458.
Houston: .464
Cleveland: .470

Another cool thing about the chart is the calculated % chance of each team making the playoffs, updated daily.

LA

LA has a fairly easy schedule in terms of the caliber of hitting they face .... 3 easy teams, 2 relatively tough: HOU, COL, ARI, SD, SF.

ARI is from an offensive standpoint the Detroit Tigers of the NL.

The bonus is they have two pretty darn good pitchers who are still on many FA lists: Odalis Perez (who you should NEVER start on the road, but is Lights Out at home) and Alvarez who has been pitching very well of late.
