Who Would Win Each of MLB's Most Likely 2014 World Series Matchups

With each passing day, regular-season games become all the more important as the clock continues to tick on the regular season.

It's not as if the season is going to end tomorrow—there's still more than a month of action left to unfold—but as teams jockey for position in the standings, it's hard not to think about some of the matchups we could see in the World Series.

Four division races—the AL Central, AL West, NL Central and NL West—find the current leaders ahead in the standings by 3.5 games or less while 13 teams are either currently holding onto or are within six games of one of the four Wild Card berths available.

A lot could—and will—change between now and the end of the regular season.

The pool of teams available to us for this exercise are those that would have qualified for the playoffs if the season had come to an end on August 18. Unfortunately, there were 13 teams that met that criteria, so one—the Seattle Mariners—has my apologies for becoming the odd team out.

We'll take a position-by-position look at what each team brings to the table and see how these likely—and intriguing—World Series matchups might wind up.
