sox-yanks playoff conundrum
October 1, 2005 2:45 PM Subscribe
Another confusing baseball question: How is it that the Yanks clinched today, when they're one up on the Sox with one to play? If the Sox win tomorrow, why would they not go to a one-game playoff? I understand it has something to do with their head-to-head record, but the Phillies are 0-6 vs. the Astros and if they end the season knotted up they're definitely going to the tiebreaker. Can anybody explain?
