There Are No Stupid Questions Thread

24 Upvotes

Got a question about baseball you've been meaning to ask, but were afraid of looking dumb? Not in here! Our esteemed and friendly panel of experts will be happy to help.

Please consider this a "Serious" thread in that we ask all top-level comments to be earnest questions, and all responses to be legitimate answers to the question by someone who knows what they're talking about; it's fine to joke around within this framework otherwise.

The Minnesota Twins and Chicago White Sox have been eliminated from playoff contention

413 Upvotes

Both teams currently have 7 games remaining with an identical 76-79 record. Four of their remaining 7 games are against each other. If one of the teams were to win out, they would have a record of 83-79. The Mariners currently have 84 wins, meaning neither team can catch them.

Also, the Toronto Blue Jays can clinch a playoff berth with an Orioles loss tomorrow. The Tampa Bay Rays can clinch a playoff berth with a win AND an Orioles loss tomorrow. The Mariners can clinch a playoff berth as early as Friday night. The Orioles lose the tiebreaker against the Rays and Mariners, and could win the tiebreaker against the Blue Jays if they win 2 out of 3 in their season ending series.
