Only eleven games scheduled today, but one playoff spot is still subject to change: the AL wild card.

The White Sox still lead the Twins by 1/2 game for the wild card as they occupy second and third in the Central, 6 1/2 and 7 games in back of Detroit.

Chicago finishes a four-game series in Detroit at 10:05 am PT (Jon Garland vs. Nate Robertson). Minnesota will be at Baltimore at 4:05 pm PT (Boof Bonser vs. Kris Benson). Minnesota will be at Chicago for a three-game series over the weekend.

The Yankees lead the East by 6 1/2 games over Boston. New York will be at Seattle at 7:05 pm PT (Randy Johnson vs. Jarrod Washburn). Boston will be at Anaheim to play the Angels at 7:05 pm PT (Josh Beckett vs. Jered Weaver). The Athletics, who leads the Angels by five games in the West, are off.

In the National League Central, the Reds have a chance to pull within .0004 of the Cardinals. St. Louis will be at New York at 4:10 pm PT (Jason Marquis vs. Dave Williams). The Reds play the Giants for the first time this season in a 7:15 pm PT game at AT&T Park (Eric Milton vs. Brad Hennessey).

The Reds lead the wild card by one game over idle San Diego and by 1 1/2 games over Philadelphia. The Phillies are at Chicago in an 11:20 am PT game (Cole Hamels vs. Carlos Zambrano). Philadelphia trails New York by 13 1/2 games in the East. If the Cubs win, they tie the Nationals for the 14th best record in the NL!

West-leading Los Angeles is off. The Dodgers lead the Padres by one game.

They also will play: Colorado at Milwaukee, Houston at Pittsburgh, Texas at Tampa Bay, Cleveland at Kansas City.

Just when my wife had gotten used to the idea of 12 planets, too. Sigh.
