MLB Playoff Picture: The Lowdown, July 21

All the power in baseball seems to be in the American League this season. The best team in the National League, the Chicago Cubs, had a .589 win percentage on the morning of July 21. Four American League teams had a better one: the Red Sox, Astros, Yankees, and Mariners. At least you can give the NL this: their worst teams (the Mets and Padres) are MUCH better than the AL’s worst teams (the Royals and Orioles).

It could take 95 wins to get a Wild Card in the American League the way things are going. Either the Yankees or Red Sox will be 100+ win teams that may find themselves in a one-and-done game. One of those two teams will complain about it, that you can bet, especially if they lose the game.

Once the trade deadline comes and goes, then we’ll know who’s a real contender and who isn’t.
