Submit questions to our Season Opener Roundtable author roundtable.
Roundtable Administrator: This chat has been created so readers can submit questions to our Season Opener Roundtable roundtable. This roundtable does not start until 12:30 PM ET on April 5, but you can submit questions for our authors any time before or during the roundtable. Just to be clear, this chat is only for submitting questions to our authors - no response will be given here. To view the roundtable, please click here.
A Reader (Internetland): Wait, how does this work again?
Roundtable Administrator: We're glad you asked! Go ahead and submit a question using this interface and then visit the Season Opener Roundtable roundtable page sometime around 12:30 PM ET on April 5. The authors will be answering questions at that time, and may answer yours.
tvwilkins (princeton): What are the odds that the 3 good AL East teams (with the some help from the non-horrible Orioles and Blue Jays) beat each other enough that the wild card comes out of the Central or West?
Roundtable Administrator: I've got a roughly 20% wild card chance for each of the Yankees, Rays, and Red Sox, with anoth 7.5% going to the Os and Jays; that only leaves 1 in 3 for the other 9 teams in the league to split.
Roundtable Administrator: OK, thanks for all the questions. Hopefully we answered yours in tonight's roundtable. Thanks for reading, and stay tuned for more roundtables.
