If the Angels win, and nobody comments on CTPG, does it count in the standings?

The last I saw was 16 comments but we were there! In the comments, that is.

In this 13 fame stretch Pineapple wants 10 wins, Fan71 thinks it’s more likely we’ll go 7-6. I think we can win 8. The ease we won with tonight makes it seem like we’ll do fine vs Oakland but then who else can pitch?
