Over at Athletics Nation, they're discussing an Eric Byrnes-for-Reggie Sanders rumor. I don't know why St. Louis would do that. When you're kicking butt like the Cardinals are, you don't mess with your team.
The latest BP Postseason Odds Report shows the A's with a 29.4% chance of making the playoffs, slightly higher than the Angels' 28.75% chance. But here's the sad thing: the A's have an average of 78 wins in their simulations, the Angels 77. If the West was won by a sub-.500 team, it would be truly pathetic.
