Must read

The 2021 MLB season is rapidly drawing to a close, and as it draws to a close, several postseason races have attracted most of the attention.

All but two divisional races appear to be closed. The Braves rose to first place in August and remain in first place in early September with the Phillies and Mets not far behind. The Giants have quietly been the best team in baseball for most of the season, but they find themselves holding back an incredibly talented Dodgers team in the NL West.

Both races for the wild card appear to be fights to the finish. In the American League, the Red Sox and Yankees entered September clinging to the top two, but have faced pressure from the Blue Jays, Mariners and Athletics. The team that finishes second in the NL West is almost guaranteed to finish the first wild card, but second place is wide open as the Reds, Padres, Phillies, Cardinals and Mets are all at a distance. attack on each other.
