A.L. Central Update

August 29, 2016

Though their chances of getting the American League one seed were damaged, the Cleveland Indians still have a four and a half game lead over the Detroit Tigers in the A.L. Central despite dropping 3 of 4 games at Texas vs the Rangers.

Maybe our focus, at least some, should turn to the current leader in the race for the A.L. one seed, the Texas Rangers.

Yet for some reason it is the Cleveland Indians that have been our focus.

The Angels helped the Indians by winning two of three games at Detroit vs the Tigers. This is not even in the same stratosphere in terms of importance, though important, as compared with the Angels splitting a 4 game, end of the season series at Detroit, in 1967, that manifested in a pennant for the Boston Red Sox.

More on that series and the great 1967 pennant race in the next post.
