With the 2015-20156 MLB regular season coming to an end, there are still many questions surrounding the post season. Six teams are currently fighting for four wild card spots, and the race could not be any closer.
Starting the NL, the Mets, who are notorious for causing the NL leaders the Chicago Cubs post season fits, hold the first wild card spot, but are only a game and a half above the second spot San Francisco Giants. However, only half a game behind the Giants are the Saint Louis Cardinals. This race is extremely tight. Fortunately for the Mets, both its competitors are just can’t squeak out a win playing below .500 teams. The race for that second spot is the real point of interest. Instead of watching these two playoff worthy teams seeing which one will drop a game and give the other a lead, everyone is watching to see which team will win a game. Both teams are on a down skid at a time most teams need to be heating up. All we can do now is sit back and watch.
On the the AL, Toronto and Baltimore’s Oriels are in a dead lock tie only a game and a half up on the Detroit Tigers. The Tigers are known for being scary at this time of the year and into the post season. The race for the second wild card spot is the opposite from the NL as if either Toronto or Baltimore drop games now, the Tigers are in prime position to steal that second spot. With the season ending on Sunday, it will be interesting to not only see who the two teams that make it to post season are, but in which spot they land.
