The race for the wild card in the American League begins today when Tampa Bay, Texas, Baltimore, Cleveland, Kansas City and NY Yankees fight over the last ten games of the regular season
Tampa Bay has no chance to win the division when is nine games behind Boston missing 10 games to finish the season.
Baltimore and has no chance of winning their division as they are eliminated.
Texas and Cleveland still aspire to win their division but are four elimination games in their respective divisions, the shortest path for the classification is the Wild Card.
Kansas City and NY Yankees are three games away from the race to win the Wild Card. I see no possibility for them.
Do not forget that these two are the six teams that will have the opportunity to play the deciding to get a spot in the postseason.
Houston at Cleveland four-game series. Cleveland (4-1 series) over Houston.
Baltimore at Tampa bay four-game series. Tampa (9-6 series) over Baltimore.
Texas at Kansas City three-game series. Texas (2-1 series) over Kansas City.
