Baseballtology: The AL Bubble Watch

Only 15 days are left in the 2012 Major League Baseball season to determine who will make the playoffs this year. Most of the races are coming down to the wire, and a lot of teams still have a chance to make a last minute push towards October. 

According to the mathematics of baseballtology (yes it’s a real thing), nine teams still remain playoff eligible in the AL at this point of the season. Realistically, the Rays and the Royals, despite not being officially eliminated, do not really have a legitimate shot.

Of the remaining seven teams, no team has officially claimed their division title or clinched a playoff berth. 

As a self-proclaimed baseballtologist, I have spent countless hours calculating, analyzing and predicting each possible scenario. I feel as though it is time to reveal how I deem the playoff picture will eventually unfold in the American League.
