If the playoff started today 8/21

Recommended Posts

I do this for the NFL on a weekly basis. I will do it here for MLB as well. If the playoffs started today, here is who would be in:

 

American League:

 

East: Boston 74-54, or Tampa Bay 72-52

 

Central: Detroit 73-52

 

West: Texas 73-53

 

Wildcards: Boston or TB whichever doesn't win East, and Oakland 71-54

 

In the Hunt: Indians 68-58 (3.5 games behind Oak.), Orioles 67-58, Yankees 66-59, Royals 64-60

 

 

National League:

 

East: Atlanta 76-49

 

Central: Pittsburgh 74-51

 

West: LA Dodgers 73-52

 

Wildcards: Cardinals 72-53 and Reds 71-55

 

In the Hunt: Diamondbacks 65-59 (5 games behind Reds)

 

all other NL teams are below .500

1-5 against playoff type teams Atlanta and Detroit. They would have to climeb over like Yankees/Orioles/As/Rays to get playoff spot.

 

Even a very week last month's schedule won't help them, I don't believe.

Today 9/3 this is how it stands:

 

ALE Boston

ALC Detroit

ALW Oak/Tex. tied

 

WCs: Oak/Tex and TB.

 

In the hunt: Balt./Cleve./NYYankees

 

NLE Atlanta

NLC Pittsburgh

NLW LA

 

WCs: St. Louis/Cinci.

 

In the hunt: no one really. The closest to these are like 9 games back. The 5 teams above are about 95% your NL playoff teams.
