Many of the top MLB teams have clinched - Minnesota, Texas, Philly - but our top two teams all year, the New York Yankees & Tampa Bay Rays, are unfortunately in the same division and still competing for 1st in the American League East. Whichever team finishes 2nd has the wildcard locked but home field advantage is always important come playoffs.
It is a true "Wild Card Race" in the National League. Both the San Francisco Giants and San Diego Padres are competing for 1st in the NL West while the Atlanta Braves are just trying to win games to secure the Wild Card spot since the Philadelphia Phillies took the NL East title. With the Giants and Braves both sitting at 88-68 and the Padres only one game behind, this division will be tight with the deciding series in San Francisco this Friday-Sunday.
If you think this wildcard race is exciting, just wait till we hit playoffs!
