But yea i get what you mean. What do you think about Cabrera most likely winning the triple crown for the first time in almost 50 years?
I mean that the fate of each team (Yanks and O's) depends on both the outcome of their own game, and the outcome of the other team's game, whereas in the West the two contenders are playing each other to finish the season.
The Cabrera thing is pretty crazy, although the top batting averages are pretty low this year, which is the real factor that's allowing it to happen. Could still fall apart in the final game, his lead is extremely slim. Would be interesting if despite all this he lost the MVP to Trout, which is possible.
