Even though many contending teams acquired “missing pieces” during the non-waiver trade deadline, there isn’t one team in particular that is a lock for a World Series berth. In order to get into the playoffs and advance to the World Series, MLB teams sometimes need just one thing to go right for them.

All statistics (through July 5) sourced from Baseball-Reference.com and FanGraphs.com.
