The Play-Off Picture

After a long regular season we are finally to the point were the post season picture is cleared. The AL is set already with 8 cycles to play yet. Baltimore will hold their normal spot at the one spot. Last season El Paso just missed the post season last season but this season they hold the 2nd spot. The Mighty Millers of Minnesota will not get the free pass this season but will hold the three spot. They will play The sixth seeded Jackson Rollin Rebels who will be making the post season for the first time since season two. Congratulation kevthekidd for turning that team into a playoff team. The 4-5 game will have Scottsdale hosting Cincinnati despite the Red Legs having the second best record in the AL.
The Bastardly NL will come done to the last game as always for final setting. The World Champions Sacramento Renegades(God DAMMIT!!) will be the top stop for sure again. Houston will claim the second spot getting the first round bye as well. Fargo and New York are fighting it out for the third stop with the loser having a safe fall back in a wild card slot for sure. Either the fifth or sixth seed. Looking at the records though I think it might be better for New York to punt away the last few games and get their players rested because they have the best NL road record and a sub .500 home record. Only Baltimore has a better away record then them. Philly is heading in for the tenth straight and 16 out of the last 18 season. Salem will hold the last play-off spot. So really the NL is set with their top 6 just a bit of seating juggling to finish up with.
Upcoming soon I will break down season 23 free agents and options. I will break down every play-off team and how I think the will compete against their first round Foes. And of course I will bitch about season awards and issue my own.
