End of week two - who is in?

playoffs american league national league minnesota twins
End of week two - who is in? With minimum games and the potential that not all the teams will play 60 games the playoffs get quite interesting

With the 16 game playoffs who is in and who is out?

Based on percentage:

American League

Yankees, Twins, Athletics are the division leaders

Second place teams:
Baltimore (really), White Sox, Astros

Next two – wild cards – best percentages
Cleveland and Detroit (yes Gardy’s gang)

National League
First seeds: Atlanta, Cubs, Rockies (really)

Second group: Miami (yes only three games), Milwaukee, Dodgers

Wild Cards: San Diego, San Francisco

Wouldn't that be fun?
