The American League wildcard race is heating up heading into September. Six teams are within 2.5 games of claiming the final wild card spot. The Toronto Blue Jays and New York Yankees will battle for the American League East title, with the runner-up most likely being the number one wildcard. The Houston Astros have increased their lead to five games, over the Texas Rangers. Kansas City continues to cruise at 78-49, which is the best record in the American League.
The National League playoff picture is beginning to take form. The Pittsburgh PIrates and Chicago Cubs have a strong hold over the San Francisco Giants. The Giants are only 2.5 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers, in the NL West, and that could be the only way they will make the postseason. The New York Mets have increased their lead in the NL East to 6.5 games, while the St. Louis Cardinals just keep winning and have the best record in baseball.
With September baseball, on the horizon, is there a team that will put together a big winning streak and make a surprise run into the postseason? Listen in and call the show with your thoughts.
