12 15 PM B. Combined with TWINS Win vs. DET, That Dropped Magic Number to ONE          
PDT C. But Combination of MIN & CLE Wins Pushed MinWin to 86 From 85, Keeping It One Ahead of Twins' Wins AND Eliminating Sox      
         
9-02 CWS Could Go Out of AL Central Monday - Magic No. Would Still Be ONE !        
1 15 PM A. All It Takes is a Twins WIN and White Sox LOSS to Cleveland          
PDT B. Magic No. is Three at Start of Monday - Twins Win, CWS Loss Would Drop it to One          
  C. But Combination of MIN & CLE Wins Would Push MinWin to 86 From 85, Keeping It One Ahead of Leader Wins AND Eliminating Sox

8-23 5. K C Out of AL C w/ Due to FRIDAY LOSS - Magic No. Would STILL BE TWO !!          
12 30 PM A. MIN & CLE Still Play Each Other 6 Times - That Means 79 Wins are Already Required to Win AL C        
PDT B. Friday Loss Would Be #84 for K C - Combined with MinWin of 79, That Means Division Elimination        
Updated C. Since MinWin is 2 Ahead of Twins' 77 Wins,That Creates a Gap (or Delta) between PS and Magic No. of TWO !!        
7:30 PM D. Playoff Eliminations of BAL & DET are likely this week-end, probably by Magic No.;          
PDT PS Elims possible by SUN., But Require Specific Results for 7 Teams, Incldg. but Not Limited to, OAK & CLE Going Winless      
         
8-22 4. NO ELIM are Possible on Thu. -          
12 30 AM But Depending on the Outcome of Thu. Games, Friday Could Be a Barn-burner (Hello, K C, BAL, DET !!!)

8-20 3. DET ELIM from AL CENTRAL on MON. by LOSS #85 !!          
1 AM A. DET LOSS #85 & DIV MINWIN = 78 (due to 6 SGR Between MIN & CLE) Means AL C Elimination
