And we are just one of four teams still in it for a division title - Astros, Reds, Dodgers, and Twins. Not too shabby for a team picked to finish last or near thereto. We are also one of only three teams still not eliminated in the Wild Card race (us, Astros, and Phillies). In the Wild Card, our Eliminiation Number is 1 and the Astros is 2.
