Magic number is 19. Got 13 games at home and 13 on the road (season ends with 7 road games at NY & Toronto.) Eight games against the Yanks and 6 against Toronto so those teams still have a slim chance.

The Machado injury could still be a major factor once the playoffs begin even if his replacements make no errors because they can't make the impossible plays that he makes. Starting pitchers look like they're getting a bit tired. Even though they haven't given up many runs, elevated pitch counts get them out of the game too early.

Mid-June I figured that we'd be a +5 or -5 .500 team. No way did I have a clue that the Orioles would be 20+ games over .500 especially with Davis scuffling, Wieters out, and Machado out starting the year. It's been a good year for people to step up and pick up their teammates. I'm looking at former Gamecock Steve Pearce as the leader of that group.

Go Orioles!!!!

Went to the Durham Bulls game yesterday. Didn't realize Walker was all the way to Triple A. He started and batted clean up for Norfolk.

That's the kind of thing the Yankees have been doing to us for years. Glad to get some payback. Seemed to take the wind out of their sails because they didn't put up much of a fight in the nightcap.

Really a stupid thing on his part. Even though his average was abysmal (the shifts really hurt him) he did have 26 HR and close to 80 RBI and was a presence in the lineup that pitchers had to account for. Most of these playoff games are one run affairs and having the potential to get that run with a swing of his bat could really hurt. Plus I think he's probably a better defensive replacement for Machado than any of the other guys.

BTW when you watch the games on ground balls to third to you think "Manny would have had that one."

AL EAST CHAMPS...finally. Gamecock Steve Pearce launched a three run jack in the bottom of the first to put the Orioles up for good. It's great to hear the announcers talk up how Pearce plays the game the right way and occasionally they will give USC props.

This has been such a fun team to watch as the role players have come up big and the team's gotten lots better as the year went along. I thought we might could win the division in a close race of near .500 teams but never dreamed the Orioles would run away with it and be 30+ games over .500.

Congratulations Orioles on a job well done. Three more series to win.

Close game until Detroit went to their bullpen. Then it just got out of hand.

I look for Detroit to get some runs on Chen today. Hoping we can go up 2-0, and didn't use up all our runs last night.

Nice to see the O's and Nationals both doing well this year. I think I was still living up that way the last time the O's won the division.

Hard being matched up against the NFL on a sunday afternoon. I watched alot of the game though. I knew getting Cruz was a big deal but I never guessed that he would be this big of a deal. Its amazing what this team is doing without Machado Wieters and Davis. It will be fun to be matched up against the Royals who in alot of ways are just like the Os.

Magic number is 8.
When looking at potential playoff teams in September the Royals are the team that I least wanted to play. Good pitching that has given us fits the past 2-3 years. Our starters will have to bring their A+ game. None of this giving up 2-3 runs in the first two innings or having 100 pitches before the 6th inning. Unlike Detroit they have a lockdown bullpen.

KC is built for the tough pitching that you usually see in the playoffs...great starting pitching, great bullpen, great team speed, and singles/doubles hitters with an occasional HR. Both teams have been red hot the last 3.5 months so it should be a good series.
