What happens if the Twins and Tigers tie for the divison title?

What happens if the Twins and Tigers tie for the division title with identical records? Do they have a one game playoff or are their tie breaking rules like records against each other, record within the division, etc. that go into affect?

There are tie breakers and the Twins would lose that. They need to finish 1 game ahead of Detroit to win the division.

The Tigers get the division if both teams tie. They only play the tie breaker game if it is for a playoff spot, since both the Twins and the Tigers have playoff spots they just use head-head records (at least this is what I have been hearing)

This is correct. My question is can divisional opponents play in the ALDS? Right now the Tigers are tied with the Yankees. If the Tigers pass the Yanks in the standings can we open against the Tigers?

I don't believe you can play a division opponent in the first round. I think at this piont it simply is a matter of which one of the teams gets the Yanks (wildcard) and which one gets the A's (division winner).

That's what I thought. I knew the wildcard team is suppose to play the better team, but thought they played #2 when #1 is in the same division.

The wild card team can never have home field no matter what the records. The wild card can not play their division in the ALDS. So, unless the Twins win the wild card they are either going to New York or Oakland. Hopefully they win out and the kitties lose 2 and the Twins take the central. It's possible, difficult but possible.

Just so were are clear here...if the Twins and Tigers tie for the Division title BOTH are AL Central Division Champions...... the Tigers win the playoff seeding because of a better head to head record against the Twins.... grin.gif

Except when the Twins go to the World Series cause the National League can't win an All-Star game!!!!

I stand corrected.

The wild card cannot have the home field during the ALDS or ALCS.

If the TWins and Tigers tie for the Div title,, I do believe years from now that Tigers will be considered the DIV champ becasue of a better head-to-head winning %. That's also why they get the nod at playing the team with more losses.--- thou it's a disadvantage for the WC team--- they are in the playoffs and the only negative aspect is that they face the potential of a extra game on the road. Not a big deal. SEE Marlins of 03' REd sox of 04' and Angels of 02'. IF the WC team wins one on the road-- the tables have turned, and in my mind, this is a knock on the team that won their div, thou I don't see how you can do it any other way other than adding another WC team and have 2 WC teams playoff to play the Strongest div champ.

I think the Tigers lose agst Lilly and one game agst K.C,, so the twins have to win 4 outta 5 to win it outright.

We shall see.

Correction-

if the TWins win 4 of 5-- the Tigers need to go 2-3 for the Twins to win the DIv outright. Right???, becasue the Twins are really two back>???

To win the division the Twins need to be 1 ahead. So, they are really 1 back, kinda sorta.

Not by me, the Twins along with the Tigers will be listed as 2006 Central division champions and will have all the banners/alkaloids associated with being 2006 American league Central division champions.

Which of course makes sense being they both have the same record through out the 162 game season.

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.
    • Borch
      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!
    • ozzie
      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.

      Welcome TheEyesofanAngler! A ton of good bass lakes around the area.  For numbers of 2 to 4 lb bass, the eastern Todd County lakes near Burtrum and NW Morrison county are hard to beat as well.
    • Wanderer
      Good job guys!
    • YellowFinRed
      Have only been out a couple of times now but did get a 5.5 lb walleye my first 10 minutes out in 16 feet of water. Lots of fish in the 16-20 feet range. No jumping in the boat but catching fish on the mid lake areas. I'll be darned if I'll sit under a bridge with other boats when you can catch fish out on the lake without others boaters around.
    • Gillraker
      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?
    • DonkeyHodey
      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)
    • Wanderer
      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎
    • gimruis
      I like Clearwater too.  I haven't fished in in a couple years now but I used to and we caught a lot of fish out there.  The one negative was all the competition - there seemed to be a tournament almost every weekend. Another overlooked place to target smallmouth: RIVERS.  The Sauk River and the Mississippi between St Cloud and Elk River is plum full of bass and receives minimal fishing pressure (its just my opinion but rivers in general are very under fished here in MN).
