Playoffs are basically finalized now. Twins magic number is 2, and the rockies is 5, but its a long shot that either the brewers or cardinals win out, and i doubt the rox would be swept by that marlins pitching staff

Here's my bracket

https://puu.sh/xJ9hB/a03ac100d1.png

There is no chance the yankees make it past the ALDS, the division winners are so clearly ahead of the wildcard it wont be close. Houstons offense is gonna be too much for the redsox, and chris sale cant pitch every game. clevelands pitching staff is insanely good and this year they go into playoffs with salazar carrasco and bauer healthy. and apparently mike clevenger is amazing now too? with that rotation no way the yankees or twins rookie loaded lineups can take a game. Cleveland wins over houston because of pitching. Verlander is terrible vs the indians and mccullers can only throw nothing but spiked curves before the indians catch up.

arizona is a much better team than colorado. their lineup is weak outside of goldscmidt but that rotation of grienke, robbie ray, and taijuan walker is much better than nobody + arenado and blackmon. especially since this wont be at coors. dbacks win over dodgers because the dbacks have had las number this entire season and la hasnt been very strong lately. washington is a much better team than the cubs, who have seen tons of regression from lester and hendricks especially. plus they dont have chapman, and the nats have rendon murphy turner zimmerman and harper, and scherzer strasburg and gio gonzales in their rotation. nats win over dbacks because strasburg and scherzer + they have an actual lineup instead of just paul goldscmidt

As a Toronto Blue Jays fan (rip), I'm rooting for the Indians. We traded Edwin Encarnacion to them last season, and a lot of people from Toronto still consider him a Jay at heart. So yeah, Go Indians!

Possible playoff situations for the last series of the year

If the rockies lose out, they'll be 86-76. If the cardinals win out, they will play a game 163 to decide who faces Arizona. Because the cardinals and brewers play the last series against each other, in this scenario the best the brewers can finish is 84-78. This is the only way the cardinals can make playoffs

If the rockies go 0-3 to finish the season, they'll be 86-76. If the brewers go 4-0, they will be 87-75, putting them ahead of the rockies, and putting the cardinals down to 83 wins at best. If the brewers go 3-1, a game 163 tiebreaker will happen. Worse than that and they are eliminated.

If the rockies go 1-2, the cardinals will be eliminated, and the brewers will have to finish 4-0 to force a tie breaker

If the rockies go 2-1 or sweep the dodgers, they will clinch the 2nd WC spot

The Red Sox need to finish 2-2, 3-1, or 4-0 to clinch the AL East and the yankees will then have to play the wild card game. If the red sox finish 1-3, and the yankees finish 4-0, then there will be a game 163 to decide who gets the wild card game. same if the red sox finish 0-4, and the yankees finish 3-1

If the yankees finish 4-0 and the red sox finish 0-4, then the red sox are the new wild card team, and the yankees will win the division

I think im going to game 1 at the juice box with my dad
SHOOT IT HOUSTON TEXAS GO ASTROS
also you're not wrong about verlander but he's been ridiculous since he joined the Astros. If there were any time for him to step up this would be it. good to see keuchel looking strong again too

There is no way washington makes to the WS, there is along history of washington teams choking in playoffs and they're not about to end that streak. They look good on paper only because they're in the easiest division in the league.

yeah same exactly for me, i wont be watching any games but that would be my ideal outcome too. fuck if donaldson had been playing the whole season, hernandez had replaced bautista earlier and sanchez wasnt ded we would have done so much better im pretty tilted

strasburg scherzer and gonzales are the best pitches in the NL outside of kershaw

harper and rendon are mvp level, murphy zimmerman turner werth are all really good,

and theyre playing the cubs, which outside of rizzo and bryant arent the best offensively, and lackey, arrieta, hendricks, and lester have seriously regressed. they cant pitch quintana every game, not to mention chapmans on the yankees now

Their bullpen has been the best in the league during the second half too iirc and Taylor has stepped up his game after Eaton died, with an .800 OPS. Their only real hole in the lineup is at catcher.

I only started watching baseball fairly recently, but I hope the Dbacks make a good run, as unlikely as it is that they actually get to the World Series.

As a Giants fan, I'm legally obligated to root against the Dodgers, so our interests coincide
