What’s in a Number?

Baseball is a statisticians dream. You can dissect the game into a million different categories, but when it comes down to it, it’s all about the wins and losses. Have a look at the Eastern Division, and the Regina Red Sox have clinched not only a playoff spot, but one more win will give them the division crown. In the West, their three playoff contenders are all but set, yet there in no guarantee about the seedings for playoffs.

And then you have the Central Division. Back and forth atop the rankings after a rough start, it’s starting to look like a playoff picture developing. Using some crude estimates and best guesses, Swift Current may end up going to the Eastern Playoffs, and Moose Jaw heads West. BUT with eight or nine games left to play, anything can happen. All it takes is one team getting hot or cold this late in the season to throw a big curveball to the standings. Stay tuned, this is far from over!!!!

Tops in Division, 2nd in League

standingsjuly16

Currently riding their best streak of the season, and 9-1 in their last ten games, the Indians have found their stride as compared to the rough start this year. They are now 3.5 up on division rival Moose Jaw, and second in the league only to the Lethbridge Bulls in the West (.667 vs .629).

Up next the Tribe plays 4 away games in 3 nights (due to a double header Thursday night in Weyburn). Following a three day rest, the team will finish the season with a five game home stand and seven games in seven nights to get ready for the playoffs. Early projections would seem to place us in the East Division bracket, but with the majority of teams still with 13 games remaining, almost anything can happen.

Central Division Battle

Some key victories as of late has put the team back on top of the division, especially a win against Moose Jaw last night, and some help from other teams beating up on our division rivals. Saskatoon is back in town this evening, followed up by a visit from Regina Thursday night.

Out West, things are shaping up as they had been in previous years. The Dawgs are finding their stride and moving up, while Edmonton has struggled and dropped down to last place. In the East, its all about Regina; the other three teams scrapping for a shot in the playoffs.

Be at Mitchell Field tonight at 7:05 where we congratulate Swift Current Minor Baseball on another successful campaign in all levels as they get ready to host the Western Canadian Minor Baseball Championships.
