I still can’t believe the A’s have made it this far. They weren’t supposed to be sniffing the playoffs but here we are.
With three games remaining in the regular season, the A’s could clinch a playoff spot as early as Monday night. Right now, the A’s are two games behind the Texas Rangers for first place in the AL West. The A’s are also have the second Wild Card spot, sitting one game behind the first spot.
The A’s magic number is 1 to reach the playoffs, so either a win by them this Monday or a loss by the Angels and Rays will secure a spot for Oakland. But the A’s can also still get the top Wild Card playoff spot since they’re only one game behind it.
But for me, I am looking forward to the AL West. The Rangesr are coming into Oakland for a three game set and if the A’s want the division title, they have to sweep the Rangers. Pretty tall order but if you’ve watched the A’s this year, it can happen.
