2011 PENNANT RACE AL EAST 18-9The Boston Red Sox find themselves on top of the AL East with only 3 games left in the season against division rivals the New York Yankees. These two games will be huge for the Bo Sox as the Tampa Bay Rays are nipping at their heels 2.5 games back. AL CENTRAL 15-9The Detroit Tigers have been on a terror all season long as their bats have carried them to a superior record and division leading record in arguably the toughest divisions in the TCBL. With 3 double headers against Minnesota, Cleveland, and the White Sox it is make or break time for this ball club. AL WEST 18-9Surprise, surprise, the Athletics have clinched the AL West with a 3.5 game cushion over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. This marks the first time the Athletics have made the playoffs since 1994. WILDCARD 13-10The White Sox have really picked it up lately with a strong second half performance. With some key wins over the Red Sox and Royals, the White Sox are in contention for the AL Central title. They sit in a good position with 7 games left to really make some noise. If they fail to continue their solid play they will plunder to the bottom of the AL Central and out of the playoffs. 15-11The Tampa Bay Rays are still in a battle for the AL East but are in good shape to nab the AL Wildcard spot. With 4 games left (@Bal, Bal, @NYY, NYY) the Rays look to win out and host one of the best records in this years TCBL season. Of course, with 4 losses, the Rays will find themselves behind the 8ball. 13-12The Royals are exceeding expectations this season and GM MG is crossing his fingers for many Rays, Tigers, and White Sox losses. If the Royals take care of business and get some help from division rivals, they will sneak their way into the playoffs. 16-13The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have no chance at the AL West title, but are very much in the hunt for the wildcard. With 1 game remaining against the NYY, if they are to get a victory they will be looking at an outside chance of getting the Wildcard spot, depending on the fiasco in the AL West and East.
