Eh, winning this series could have cost us many as three draft slots (v NYM, CHC and AZ) so whatevs. We got to .500; X and Raffy blossomed; now let’s get EdRo #20 and throw this whole stupid season in the dumpster.

(This makes more sense here than in V&N, lol — as much of a shitshow as Red Sox 2019 was, it was a pimple on the ass of the debacle that is DJT...)

Isn't it still possible to lose one or two draft slots if there is a tie between BOS, AZ, and CHC?

"The general draft order is the reverse order of the previous year's standings. If two teams finish with identical records, the previous year's standings of the two teams is the tiebreaker, with the team having a worse record receiving the higher pick. " - quick google search

so obviously we lose all tiebreakers. the scenario:

Red Sox 83-78
D-backs 84-77
Cubs 84-77
Mets 85-76

so a loss tomorrow would ensure the 16th pick. we could fall as far as the 18th pick.
