The running updates on final series as well as updating extended standings and final ERA's for each pitcher will continue to be posted here. However, here is the simplified best and worst case in wins for each team through the final 60-game record.
Best case in wins (e.g. Houston could win 44 in a best case, but if they lose out just 32-28.
44 (32) - Houston (West, plays Min, Bal)
39 (33) - Boston (East, LA) - if tied with Yanks, wins the division due to head-to-head
39 (33) - New York (East-tie, TB)
39 (33) - Cleveland (Central, Sea)
35 (29) - Chicago (Oak) - 31
35 (29) - Seattle (Bos)
34 (28) - Oakland (Chi) - 32
Only technically alive
32 (20) - Minnesota (Hou, KC) - must finish 11-1 for any chance
31 (25) - Baltimore (Hou) - must finish 6-0 for any chance
Mathematically Eliminated - when Red Sox and Yankees tied with 33 wins, it eliminated the Royals (best case 30 wins) because either the White Sox or A's will emerge with at least 31 wins after their final series, so that is the minimum number required for a chance at the last wild card spot. Baltimore is mathematically alive for the last spot.
27 (21) - Tampa (Cle, NY) - must finish 11-1 for any chance
30 (24) - Kansas City (Min)
28 (22) - LA Angels (Bos)
Eliminated previously as 5th place team in Division: Blue Jays, Rangers, Tigers.
