The Baltimore Orioles have lost 88 games so they cannot win more than 74 games. The Yankees have won 83 games so Baltimore cannot win the American League Eastern Division. Tampa Bay has won 76 games so the Orioles will finish behind at least one non-division winner in the American League Eastern Division. Minnesota has won 77 games and Cleveland has won 75 games, so Baltimore also will finish behind at least one non-division winner in the American League Central Division.

Shades of the old St. Louis Browns! The Orioles have been toastified. --Bob
