With just two weeks to go until the MLB season ends, we have a fairly clear picture of who could make the playoffs. If we were still in the old playoff format, the NL would already be just about decided, with Washington, Atlanta, Cincinnati and San Francisco making it to the playoffs.
With the addition of the second wild-card team, both leagues have many more teams looking to squeeze into the playoffs thanks to that final spot. In fact, roughly half the teams in the league are still in it.
Playoffs are never the goal, though; the goal is to make it to the World Series and win it. Which teams are the front-runners and which are long shots to make it to the big dance?
