80's Tournament: A.L. West Quarterfinals

This division/region was completely blown to pieces in the 1st round but this round things almost went to form. The '86 Angels did what the '89 A's were supposed to do and that was sweep the '87 Mariners. The other three series all went at least six games with the one upset by the '83 White Sox as they eliminated the '87 Twins in seven games. Interesting thing about that series is every game was won by the road team, the complete opposite of the '87 World Series. That now leaves no World Series teams left in this division/region.

 

Again stat lines are for both rounds.

The '88 team was better than the '87 team.

 

Tim Laudner couldn't go 20 for 53 swinging off a tee.

 

So far you've eight different teams reaching their leagues semi-finals.

Laudner actually had a halfway decent year with a 99 OPS+ but I did have to do a double take when I first looked at numbers thinking I was looking at the wrong player.
