Updated MLB Playoff Predictions Bracket

Zachary D. Rymer@zachrymerMLB Lead WriterSeptember 11, 2012

Time is short in the 2012 Major League Baseball season. Those who would march into October with their chins held high only have three weeks left to punch their tickets.

The playoff picture in the National League has never been clearer than it is right now. All three division leaders have comfortable cushions to sit on, and nobody seems all that interested in challenging the Atlanta Braves and the St. Louis Cardinals in the wild-card race.

The American League is a different story. No division lead is bigger than 3.5 games, and the wild-card race could go about a million different directions in the final weeks of the season.

Myself and B/R Pop Culture Lead Writer Gabe Zaldivar are back once again to predict how MLB's races are going to pan out when all is said and done. As they always are, our ramblings were caught on video.
