NL Season Playoff Picture - Clarity thru W-L tracking
Another playoff team clinched this week, with Fish taking 5 of 6 from Spencer on Monday. Because the 4 teams most closely trailing 1st and 2nd place all have games against each other, only 2 of the 4 can potentially get enough total wins to get to 24 wins where Fish currently sits. SO - that appears to lock up a spot for Fish's squad, and he has a solid chance to take the 1-seed if he can win 4 of his last 6 games.
Carlo, Mar, Spence, Nick and even Ben all have a chance to get in on those last 2 playoff slots, but it could be very tight down the stretch, given that many games remaining are between these teams. Tiebreakers could become key, which if I recall go first to overall H2H record, and if a 3-3 tie there, total runs in the series. So hang on to those scoresheets, since not all the series have been documented on the site here.
