Minnesota’s Twins, Arizona’s Diamondbacks, and Houston’s Astros are the AL East’s three wild-card teams, and all three teams are in position to claim their first postseason berth in nearly a decade.
But the three AL West teams have been largely invisible this postseason.
As a result, the wild-cards are being overshadowed by a handful of teams who have been more dominant in recent years.
The Los Angeles Dodgers, for example, have won eight straight playoff games and have the best record in the NL.
Meanwhile, the New York Yankees have won nine straight games and are in a tie for second place with the Chicago Cubs, who have won the last two World Series.
The San Francisco Giants, meanwhile, have gone 21-9 since the start of the year and have a .500 record and an NL-best 10-5 record in their last 13 games.
The New York Mets are in fourth place in the division, and they have won three of their last four games.
However, they have only a .286 winning percentage in their past seven games.
These three teams have lost four of their past five games and will play a playoff series in a division with the Dodgers, Yankees, and Giants.
What to look for in each wild-Card game?
The Yankees are in first place, which means they have the advantage of being in first position in the standings and therefore have more chances of winning the wild cards.
But that also means they need to be better than their record would suggest.
The team that loses its final two games of the regular season is eliminated from postseason contention.
For the Yankees, that means they can start their season by playing better baseball.
But even if they lose their final two, they still need to win their remaining seven games and they can still have a chance to win the AL wild-catchers.
So the Yankees need to play better baseball and start the season on a winning note, but they need help to do that.
The Dodgers are in third place, meaning they are not a wild-cats, but a wild team with a losing record.
The best teams in the league have won six of their seven games, which makes them a very strong team.
So they need some help, especially since they need at least a win to guarantee themselves a wild card.
The Yankees need a win in six of the next seven games to be sure of a wild spot, but the Dodgers are one game behind.
That makes it tough for the Dodgers to win on their own.
The Giants are in fifth place, and their record is the worst in the American League.
The worst teams in baseball have lost five of their six games and the Giants have the worst record in baseball.
So, the Giants can win the NL East and potentially the division.
But, the team with the worst records needs to be the most competitive, and that means winning a lot of games.
What is a winning record?
The best team in the majors wins by an average of 1.6 wins per 162 games.
That means teams that are 1.5 wins better in the past five seasons have won 8.2 more games than teams that have been 1.0 wins worse.
So a 1.9-win improvement is a great thing.
But a 1-win decline is also a great accomplishment.
The Mets are one of the best teams ever, but their record of 4-16 is actually the worst mark in baseball since 1946.
The next best team is the 1986 Washington Senators, who won 6-16.
The Astros are one win away from winning the AL Central and will face the division-leading Dodgers in the wild card game, but that is not enough to guarantee a playoff spot.
The Angels are another team that is just a bit better than average, but is not quite as good as the Mets or Giants.
The Mariners are a little better than good, but not great.
The Rays are also a bit worse than average and should still have enough to get a wild Card spot.
What does this mean for the NL West?
This is the second wild-round series this year, and the AL and NL West teams will play each other for a spot in the postseason.
The teams in this series will face each other in the final two rounds of the playoffs.
The wild-bowling portion of the AL Wild Card Series will take place Thursday, and then the wild game will take a place in October.
The NL Wild Card series will take the field in October and the wild contest will be played in late November.
