Two and a half games back and four and a half ahead in the wild card. Nothing matters till we actually make it, but how sweet to watch Boston collapse. Even if they hold on, Boston will feel like they succeeded just by winning the division. My brother prefers the "stomp them into the ground and let them be demoralized about one of the biggest collapses in the regular season in baseball history" and that certainly has its appeal as well.
But talk to me -- what is the best scenario where we get to the post season but don't have to play the Angels in the first round?
