It isn't exactly thrilling yet, but it is better than nothing.
- In the AL Wildcard race, the Red Sox lead the Rays by 3.5 games. According to BP's Playoff Odds Report the Rays have just a 2.7% chance of catching Boston. Other sites are suggesting an 11% chance. The problem facing the Rays is that the Red Sox are really really good.
- In the AL West the Rangers have a 2.5 game lead. According to BP, the Angels have a 9% chance of winning the division. This one isn't over, but the Angels desperately need a five-game Texas losing streak.
- The Cardinals are still six games back in the Central, but only 4.5 games behind the Braves. I root against the Braves as a matter of principle, though both teams can be maddening in the ways they squander talent. The Braves are something like 95% favorites to win the Wild Card.
