No team in baseball history has come from three games back with four games to play. The Minnesota Twins like those odds.
Two games before the end of the season, we find ourselves with not one, but two down-to-the-wire playoff races that could make history. Here’s the difference: whether the Rockies and Dodgers win or lose, they’re both playing playoff baseball. Either the Twins or the Tigers, though, will miss the postseason. These next two games are for all the marbles. Actually I guess it’s for all the baseballs, since they’re playing baseball.
