We're down to the final week of the regular season. The Red Sox, Indians and Braves have clinched their respective divisions, and the Yankees have clinched a wild-card spot. Everything else is up for grabs, though some teams have a firmer grip on an invitation to the October dance than others.
If you're a fan of chaos -- if you're rooting for Team Entropy -- the good news is that there's a reasonable chance that it will take more than 162 games to sort things out, particularly when it comes to the National League wild card, though both the Central and West could wind up tied, as well.
Here's how the races stack up, with a look at the week ahead:
What to watch for
BIGGEST SERIES -- Brewers at Cardinals, Monday through Wednesday
For all of the contenders still standing, this is the only head-to-head matchup between any two of them until Friday, when the Cardinals visit the Cubs. Both teams here still have a faint shot at catching the NL Central-leading Cubs, though the Cardinals' odds of doing so, according to FanGraphs, are just 0.7 percent, and their elimination number with regard to that race is three. The Brewers, by comparison, still have a 7.1 percent chance of winning the division and an elimination number of five.
