Previous fucked up math:

So it sounds like most people have given up on this season pretty much, which is understandable.  The A's are currently sitting 12.5 games back, and the situation looks pretty dire.  I was just sitting at work thinking about what it would require to make the playoffs this year, and I made a little spreadsheet model.

Assuming the RangersAngels, and Mariners maintain their current win percentages, the Athletics need to win __ of the last __ games.  Obviously that would be insane, but I still like to have a number to look at.  Of course, the other teams probably won't win at the exact same percentage for the remaining games.  Texas has been on a tear recently, so maybe (hopefully) they will cool off.

I am just thinking of it as winning ___ games remaining.  Obviously it is not a reasonable goal, but hey, a man can dream.
