Not Even The End Of August And Two MLB Teams Eliminated

It’s August 30th and there are already two teams in the majors who have been eliminated from the playoffs. The Seattle Mariners and the Pittsburgh Pirates are no longer in contention for the playoffs in October.

Team W L PCT GB E#
Seattle 52 83 .385 30.5 E
Pittsburgh 57 78 .422 27.5 E

* GB: Games Behind
** E#: Elimination Number

This has been a very interesting year. A month ago, Jason Bay was playing for the Pirates who just got eliminated and now he is on the Red Sox playing to try and win the division. The division that is being destroyed by the Tampa Bay Rays. A team that this exact date last year, was three games away from elimination. When all the other teams were at least 10-15 games from being eliminated. (except the Red Sox who won the division on September 29th…I was inside “Game On” watching the Yankees lose giving us the title).

Currently the Red Sox are 4.5 games behind the Rays and the Yankees are 11 1/2 with 17 games as their E#. The Red Sox need to get JD Drew, Sean Casey and Josh Beckett back in so that we can finish the season off with another Division Title.

GO RED SOX!!!!!!
