As we flip our calendars to September we have officially entered into the stretch run of the 2013 regular season. And just as in many Septembers of the past, there are a handful of clubs that are sure-ins for postseason play.
But there are also a number of hopeful teams that are fighting for their October lives. Of course, only five teams from each league can make it into the playoffs, so there will be some disappointed teams who missed the cut.
The following is a list of teams who could be those left out of October baseball, due to a lack of offense, pitching or just bad luck. Better luck next year!
