The Os tied against the Yanks in the season series which is the first tie breaker. The second is record within the division. Even if the Rays swept us, we would have a better record in the division. Of course, if the Os were swept, the BoSox would have to sweep the Yanks as well to make this happen.
EDIT: But you realize that in case of a tie for a division title or, a second place WC berth, there is a playoff game to determine the winner. The tie breaker simply means you get to play at home.Edited by KObalto - 9/30/12 at 6:10pm
