With the Major League Baseball postseason starting in just 3 weeks away, lets take a look at the Current picture, with the red hot Cleveland Indians, they have taken over the top spot in the American League, while the LA Dodgers who have currently lost 15 of their last 16 games, remain atop of the NL because of how good they were to start the season at 91-36 at one point, now they are currently 92-52. And so with that here is the postseason picture if the season were to end today with the Wild Cards that are still in it with their Remaining Schedules.
