  • Say what you will, but there’s something a bit nerve-provoking about playing a team that’s dropped 13 straight. Yeah, you should win, but no team is that bad, so you know they’re “due.”
    Interesting stats though.

  • This almost ties into the discussion below. The Yankees have had a very easy schedule. Now that they’re injured, the schedule can’t help but get harder. Strike Two.

  • I don’t know that they’ve had a very easy schedule. Opening the season on the road against Oakland and California, then going back out West again for Minnesota–those teams may be underachieving, or not achieving, but I wouldn’t describe that as easy.

  • And one I forgot:
    Sox’ record without the Orioles: 18-16

  • What about the AL Central clubs who get to face KC 19 times a year? If the Royals play .250 ball against those teams, in line with their season winning percentage, then those teams go 14-5 against the Royals, approximately. Meaning if the Chisox and Tigers play .500 ball against everyone else they win a minimum of 85 games. Lucky them.

  • They’re the sole reason why I picked an AL Central team to win the Wild Card. Picked the wrong team it looks right, but hey, I got it half right!
