When MLB adopted the new playoff format that included an extra wild-card team in each league, they envisioned exactly what is going on right now.
With just six games remaining for each team, 12 teams are still fighting it out for either a division title or wild-card slot.
For anyone who isn't anywhere near an abacus or calculator, that's 40 percent of the teams in the majors that still have a mathematical chance.
This is exactly what MLB wanted—more drama involving more teams heading into the season's final days.
However, just because each team has a mathematical chance doesn't mean they have a realistic chance.
We will take a look at each team still in the wild-card hunt and give our best guess as to the actual odds of them qualifying for the postseason.
We'll discuss a couple of divisional races as well—just to mix things up.
