So we got three against the Orioles here at home and four more in Kansas City to end the regular season.
Four more wins is a total of 97 wins for the season – not shabby at all, and likely close to being the Major League’s best.
But the key word in that sentence above is “CLOSE.” Both Minnesota and New York could easily grab home field throughout the playoffs:
The Yankees have 93 wins – the same as your Rays. They play three at Toronto, and three more at Boston.
Simply put, the Rays must keep pace with both teams over this final week if they want to own the best record, and all that comes with it.
