OK, here's how it needs to shake out.
We finish one-two with Boston in the AL East. California wins the West. Tigers take Division III.
Because we can't play within our Division, we need California to play Boston in the first round, while we play Detroit.
California beats Boston in five games with two brawls and a beanball war. We take Detroit in four. Jared Weaver and Jon Lackey get swine flu. We take the Angels in five and play the Dodgers for posterity.
From there, a crapshoot.
Make it happen, Pope. Or we break the other wrist.
