MLB contenders have just six games to play in the 2012 regular season as they jostle for the remaining playoff berths.
At this late stage of the season, we determine the strength of each team's schedule by individual matchups. Between pitchers and batters, catcher and baserunners, outfielders and ballpark dimensions, etc.
My focus is on the playoff chase, so let's ignore the four National League clubs that have already punched their tickets to the postseason. Also, the AL's Texas Rangers can taste the champagne with the potential to lock up a spot on Friday night.
But that still leaves 10 others vying for five openings.
The first few contenders you'll see face great challenges, while the final mentions possess the schedule edge.
