The Royals aren’t the Cubs, the team with the drought that makes Kansas City’s 29 years look like a movie trailer. Still, the Royals are the team that frightens parents.

So, is this the year of Buck Showalter, Bryce Harper and a Beltway Series? Or perhaps Albert Pujols, Yasiel Puig and a Freeway Series? Maybe a Bay Area matchup or something from the Show Me State.

Those rooting for chaos in baseball’s final weekend are witnessing all of their dreams coming true heading into Sunday. While three teams had an opportunity to clinch either a division championship or a wild-card spot on Saturday. In the name of said chaos, all three failed to cross the finish line, setting up what could be and likely will be a wild final day in baseball’s regular season. The most notable situation surrounds the one postseason spot that has yet to be claimed — the second AL wild card. On both Friday and Saturday night in Texas, the A’s needed just a victory to punch their ticket to the AL wild-card game, yet they were unable to get the job done, falling 2-1 and 5-4 respectively against the worst team record wise in the AL. That left the door open slightly for the Seattle Mariners, and with two wins over the Angels, they’re just one back with one game to play. The St. Louis Cardinals and Detroit Tigers are already in, but still haven’t clinched their respective divisions, leaving open the possibility they could each fall into their league’s wild-card game. Both teams missed on their opportunity to clinch Saturday as the Pittsburgh Pirates and Kansas City Royals also lost.  That leaves us with three races yet to be determined and six potentially meaningful games on Sunday afternoon. The scenarios themselves are all pretty straight forward, but they’re definitely ripe for chaos. Here’s a look at how they set up and what you’ll want to root for to get three tiebreaker games on Monday. American League Wild-Card • A’s clinch wild-card with win or Mariners loss. • Mariners force tiebreaker with win AND A’s loss. The tiebreaker game would be played on Monday at Safeco Field by virtue of Seattle winning the season series 10-9. The team that wins the wild-card would visit the No. 1 seed Los Angeles Angels in the ALDS beginning on Thursday. American League Central
