In 4 divisions, the 2nd place team is still chasing the 1st place team for the title. Will they catch them?
The Minnesota Twins are keeping pace with the White Sox but are still 2.5 games back. They start a 3 game set today which most likely will determine the outcome of this race. Minnesota realistically needs to take all 3 to control their own destiny.
The Dodgers lead the Diamondbacks by only 2 games. Both teams have been eliminated from Wild Card contention. So it's win the division or go home. This race will likely come down to the wire. Should be a good one to watch.
In the NL, the Brewers are neck and neck with the faltering Mets.
In the AL, the Yankees live for one more day. A loss by them or a win by the Sox reduces the WC race to the loser of the AL East race.
Will the Yanks still be alive when they go to Boston later this week? Time will tell......but if you ask me...I highly doubt it.
