And scoreboard watching is part of the daily activity and asking the question "Who is in if the playoffs started today?" isn't so absurd.
So as we enter the final full month of the regular season, let's look at who is in... IF THE PLAYOFFS STARTED TODAY. (Team with home field advantage listed first.)
Sorry rest of the baseball world... but I have a feeling both the NLCS and the ALCS will contain only teams on Eastern Standard Time.
Seriously, in which one of the above match ups do you favor a team that plays west of Tampa Bay?
You might hate the East Coast Bias... but the teams are better.
