Overall (Semi) Official Mariners Playoff Chances

Now, to find the actual percent chance that the Seattle Mariners have of catching Oakland and making the one-game playoff for the one-game playoff, we will consider M’s chances according to all these factors, and average them out.

((.0437)x(.0787)x(.0779)x(.0513)x(.0489))/5= .0600

That’s what the numbers say, and numbers never lie.
