With about a month-and-a-half left of the 2013 MLB regular season, there are still several teams in the hunt for October baseball. At least half of the teams in the sport are within striking range of a playoff spot, thanks, of course, to the added wild card spot in each league.

The following clubs have seemingly given up on this season, and are prepared to play spoiler for the rest of the year, eyes fixed towards the future.
