Today is going to tell us a LOT. With the Rangers and Angels playing a day/night double-header, and the A's entering play 2.5 up on LAA, 2.5 back of TEX, consider this...
- The A's could finish the day just 1 game out of 1st place, thus needing to win "3 out of 4" (including a one-game playoff) in order to win the division.
- The A's could finish the day 4 games out of 1st place, with Texas having clinched the AL West.
- The A's could finish the day just 1 game up on LAA, facing a very real possibility of missing the playoffs entirely.
- The A's could finish the day 4 games up on LAA, having clinched a post-season berth.
