Thread: Countdown to the Playoffs - 2017 Edition

  1. #1

    Countdown to the Playoffs - 2017 Edition

    It's that time of year for the annual postseason push countdown.

    37 GAMES TO GO.
    72-53

    Currently we are in 1st place in the division.
    FanGraphs odds to win the division: 90.6%

    Division:
    4.5 Games ahead of MFY (4 in the loss column).
    Tampa, Baltimore, and Toronto have all fallen off to over 10 games back.


    IT'S TIME TO GET SERIOUS.


    LET'S DO THIS!!!!!

    Take 3 of 4 from the MFYs a the end of the month and that should get them the division.

    with no Price, we may actually have a shot to go deep into thre playoffs!

    well, i have started this thread every year since 2005 so it's tradition. last year we were ~5GB when i started it and i think only kimmi, S&C, and me thought we would win the division at that time.
    we can talk about whatever you want m8.

    Magic Numbers:

    Division - 34
    Wild Card - 31
    The Yankees could go 0-162 and it wouldn't be enough

    Looks more like it was 50/50 to me. Not that it really matters.

    I was out and I was clearly wrong. This was due to my extreme hatred of Pedroia, Farrell and Buchholz, obviously.

    We are in good shape for the final push - Let's hope that the JBJ thumb injury doesn't amount to anything. Need him . Get the the dark lords back healthy - Price and Pedroia - this team might be the one to beat.

    Could that final weekend with Houston be important? Nice little winning streak right about now will make things interesting. Nothing huge but 5 or 6 games would be nice.

    Could be a big series for home field advantage.

    I'm glad you took on the "Magic Number" challenge. I like following it, but I'm too lazy to keep track of it myself.
