Mathematically Eliminated

Anaheim has a Magic Number of two against Texas, and Oakland has a number of three. Neither team eliminates the Rangers by itself, but Anaheim and Oakland have four games against each other next week. When the teams ahead of Texas face off, the results always hurt. Texas can't win more than 86 games, and either Anaheim or Oakland will win no fewer than 87. Current Wild-Card leader Cleveland already has 88 wins.

This exercise in pointlessness sponsored by Tucks Medicated Pads.
