Win or go home

by Aaron Giddens
It's all down to this. Games 160 through 162. If the Rays sweep they do their part, but A's also have to be swept. It only takes 1 A's win or 1 Rays loss to end it all for 2012. That is, the A's magic number is 1.

This is why I don't buy in to the argument that "it's only one game". If we had one or two other games we would have more life in us. But people made excuses and now we're learning the lesson that the Red Sox learned last year: that one loss can make or break your season, even in April.

Tonight the Rays have their work cut out for them. Facing the Orioles and Wei-Yin Chen. Chen has not been an easy opponent for the Rays statistically speaking. He's been practically average. An ERA over 3 versus the Rays.

It's literally one game at a time. Play ball!
