The Final Blow

Things are little tougher, but it definitely isn't over.

We no longer control our own destiny in the division, and I don't like this team's chances in a one game playoff

Oh please.  You should be thankful we even have a chance at the one game playoff.  The AL has been so bad this year, we have no business even having a chance to make the playoffs.  

 

Both World Series teams last year were wild card teams.  The Yankees just lost Teix for the season, we can beat them.  Its probably the only chance we have at making a deep run, if we somehow win that game we probably get some confidence going into a playoff series.  

 

I wouldnt mind making the Wild Card game as the 2nd wild card.  If Texas doesnt win this upcoming series with the Astros, we have a real shot at it.  But we need to take out the Twins too.  The results of this week will decide if we have a chance or not.

In a literal sense? Not even close. Spiritually? Yeah that pretty much nailed the coffin shut.

 

Here you have a chance (a big chance, since they led 3-0 in the 9th) to complete the sweep and move within 2.5 games of first, and your closer comes in in what is thus far the biggest game of the season and takes the biggest shit he's ever taken in an Angels uniform and loses the game.

 

This team did not need that.

This is true. Since the addition of the second wild card, a shocking number of the teams that have made deep postseason runs had absolutely no business being allowed into the playoffs, including the 2012 Tigers, the 2012 Cardinals, the 2014 Royals, and especially the 2014 Giants.
