A.L. EAST: Yankees [Clinched playoff spot]: 97-59 with 6 left [3 vs. MIN/3 vs. TOR] Red Sox [Clinched playoff spot]: 94-62 with 6 left, 3 behind [2 vs. TB/4 vs. BAL] -Edge goes to the Sox for quality of opponents. The Jays may prove to be spoilers for the Yankees, but I think this will go down to the Twins series...if they can take 2 of 3, the Sox win the division.
A.L. CENTRAL: Twins [Clinched division]: 90-66 with 6 left
A.L. WEST: Athletics: 89-67 with 6 left [3 vs. SEA/3 vs. ANA] Angels: 88-68 with 6 left, 1 behind [3 vs. TEX/3 vs. OAK] Rangers: 86-70 with 6 left, 3 behind [3 vs. ANA/3 vs. SEA] -The Angels will decide who wins the division. I say that they win it.
A.L. WILDCARD: Red Sox [Clinched at least wildcard]: 94-62 with 6 left
N.L. EAST: Braves [Clinched division]: 92-64 with 6 left
N.L. CENTRAL: Cardinals [Clinched division]: 103-53 with 6 left
N.L. WEST: Dodgers: 90-66 with 6 left [3 vs. COL/3 vs. SF] Giants: 87-69 with 6 left, 3 behind [3 vs. SD/3 vs. SF] Padres: 85-71 with 6 left, 5 behind [3 vs. SF/3 vs. ARZ] -Dodgers win as long as they don't get swept by Rockies.
N.L. WILDCARD: Cubs: 88-68 with 6 left [3 vs CIN/3 vs. ATL] Giants: 87-69 with 6 left, 1 behind [3 vs. SD/3 vs. SF] Astros: 87-70 with 5 left, 1.5 behind [2 vs. STL/3 vs. COL] Padres: 85-71 with 6 left, 3 behind [3 vs. SF/3 vs. ARZ] -Cubs/Braves series could kill their chances. If they are still on top going in, they win it. Otherwise, the Giants do.
