    The Contenders:_____Remaining Games (3 game series, unless noted)
    Phillies --
    53-85, .384 -- @NYM(1), MIA, OAK, LA(4), @ATL, NYM
    Giants -- 54-87, .383 -- @COL(1), @SOX, LA, AZ, CO(2), @LA, @AZ, SD
    SOX -- 54-83, .394 -- CLE(2), SF, @KC, @DET(4), @HOU, KC, LAA(4), @CLE

    The Probably Not-ers:
    Oakland --
    58-80, .420
    Detroit -- 59-79, .428
    NY Mets -- 59-79, .428

    I think the Giants take it. That's definitely the hardest schedule and the SOX will have trouble getting and staying below them with 4 games in hand.

    Giants schedule looks brutal. I wouldn't bet against them getting the #1 pick. Man, they suck, have basically sucked since the ASG last year?

    Will the SOX lose 100 games? It's possible, but probably not.

    What's crazy to me is the Phillies only have 1 road series left after tonight.

    They're .431 at home and .342 away.

    Problem is the Sox are playing ~.500 ball since early August when every team around and below them is free falling like they should be. With all the Detroit injuries and Cabrera suspension, they might finish 4th in the division, maddeningly enough.

    In short,

    Lose the next 2 against Cleveland
    2-1 vs SF
    1-2 vs KC
    2-2 vs DET
    0-3 vs HOU
    1-2 vs KC
    1-3 vs LAA
    0-2 vs Cleveland

    61-101, could be a good last place finish, these guys aren't gonna do that good down the stretch are they?

    I don't really follow the draft at all but is there really going to be that much of a difference in #1 vs #2 or #3? It's not like there's a consensus #1 guy like there was with someone like Harper or Strasburg is there?

    Dummies take 2/3 in KC.
    They'll probably sweep Detroit and Houston just for shits.

    Tigers back in the race for #1 now, only 2 GB behind us. So after the sweep, we'll be 2 up.

    Cleveland will probably be resting players too.

    Hopefully we go like 2-5 at best vs KC and LAA

    Moncada has almost a 800 OPS when hitting only 241. When his BABIP increases it's possible he'll have an OPS in the range of 850-900 depending how good his power develops.
