It was a wild season to say the least but, alas it has finally come to the end. I think every seed changed hands several times in the last 20 games in the AL. Several hopes and dreams were shattered for sure. The Senators had their best season ever only to fall short by a game. The Expos go 21-4 down the stretch like a phoenix rising from the ashes, but their fire was extinguished in the end. The Mets sneak in after throwing a tantrum, after calmness prevailed they figured out a way around those annoying pitchers, then a novel idea came about in Louisville.
Pascual Solano moved the all-time Save record to 656 this season. We are not sure he will be able to tie his shoes next year.
Dom Tabaka moved into second place on the all-time Save list at 552 passing Zeus Singleton.
1. Texas Rangers - they win the biggie with a 21-9 division record as H2H was 5-5.
2. Colorado Springs Sky Sox - Lost the division crown for a while but got back on track.
3. Detroit Tigers - We thought they would run away with it but got threatened at the end even.
4. Boston Red Sox - We are not sure they are the best team in the division, their record says so however.
5. Anaheim Angels -Had a bad last 20 as they coughed up a possible #1 seed after trailing most of the season. Not bad for a piecemeal team.
6. Kansas City Royals - All but written off at one point in the season then watched the Red Hot Expos zoom into the seed only to see it vanish like Twinkies.
1. Chicago Cubs: Was there ever a doubt?
2. Los Angeles Dodgers - outfought the Braves in the final roundup to get a few days off.
3. Atlanta Braves - Tired teams can do this at the end.
4. Mexico City Diablos Rojos - The way championships should be done at the end.
5. Cincinnati Reds - Stepchild of the North, sibling rivalry this way come?
6. New York Mets - What a nail biter I had, too many things had to go right the last three games. I had to sweep Philly, Mexico City had to win 2 from Florida and San Diego had to win 2 form Arizona.
