The Chicago Cubs Likely Will be in the Baseball Playoffs

August 25, 2015

The Chicago Cubs head out west almost certain to at least be a playoff entrant in baseball 2015.

It is a horror to me that there is a wild card presence, no less two in each league.

As it happens, the three top teams in the NL Central (Cardinals, Pirates and Cubs) have the three best records in the league, at this point by a fairly significant margin.

Wild card supporters, with some justification, will point out how “unfair” it would be to have the teams with the second and third best records in the league fail to qualify for the ‘offs.

However, in my opinion that is more than offset by the realistic possibility that the first place Cardinals could win the division easily and be beaten by a team it beat out from its own division.

This has happened before and will happen again, maybe this year involving the NL Central. It diminishes the importance of the 162 game regular season and to me that is a great “baseball sin.”
