The entire baseball season is important, but when the season is almost over, there seems to be a special intensity. Even though a loss in April matters as much as a loss in September, it doesn’t feel that way.
Most of that reaction probably comes from the fact that every loss is viewed under a microscope in September. We all know that one game can send a team home for the winter or usher them into a playoff run.
With this type of tension in mind, here are power rankings based solely upon the month of September. It doesn’t matter how well each team played during the rest of the season. We care about results in the clutch. I will provide their records from September for your reference.
