Yesterday was my fifth wedding anniversary. What a great night, and I told my wife I couldn't imagine a better anniversary present than the Royals clinching a playoff spot.

As the pop-up settled into Salvy's glove, and the bar I was at in Waldo went nuts, I exchanged a few texts with my dad - the reason I'm a Royals fan - who wanted to make sure KC was going as crazy as it should be.

Just a great, cool, evening. Damn, it feels good to finally see them make the postseason after years of waiting and waiting and waiting.

THE PROCESS. Validated?

Joe Poznanski's take on the Royals. I miss Joe in the KC Star a lot.

At least you old people had the 85 season. I was born in 87 if I didn't have KU I wouldn't have seen any success in sports. The Chiefs always disappointed, the Royals always sucked, etc. I cried a little bit tears of joy last night. Amazing times hopefully we can build on this season for the future. Also we're winning the division.

Just for fun, I'll calculate a back of the envelope probability. I will use these rough assumptions:

P(Detroit loss) = 40% per game
P(KC win) = 55% per game

Given that, then:

P(we outright win the division with no 163rd game) = 1.06%
P(we tie and force a tiebreaker game on Monday in Detroit) = 7.41%

That is.... actually more likely than I expected.

OK, lets assume the Twins are mailing it in and they only have a 1/3 chance of winning each game, which is pretty bad.

P(we outright win the division with no 163rd game) = 0.62%
P(we tie and force a tiebreaker game on Monday in Detroit) = 5.21%

Still decent, considering I thought it was hopeless.

OK, I guess we have about a 1 in 20 shot, give or take, of the Tigers not clinching the division by the end of Sunday.


How about now?

Same here. I tried to become a Giants fan, tried to become an Angels fan, couldn't do it. I just could never really bring myself to care if they won or lost.
