Bob Timmermann of the Portable Griddle keeps track of each team being eliminated each year. He calls it his MLB Death Watch. Today is is first installment. Hope you’re enjoying the last (technically) meaningful baseball of the season, Rangers fans, because it could be all over tonight:

Bob notes that the Rangers will be mathematically eliminated from postseason play tonight if they lose to the Royals and the Tigers beat Cleveland.

Bring out your dead. Starting tonight, maybe.
