The Dodgers entered today with 87 wins already on the board. The most wins the Giants could possibly finish with is 87. In other words, the Giants will be eliminated from the NL West race with one more loss or one more LA win. It's Aug. 20! According to Elias, the last time a team was eliminated from its division race this early was 1998. The Giants have never been eliminated from NL West contention this early, dating back to 1969.
