Now without any John Feinstein or Bob Knight material!
Pittsburgh, after its 8-6 loss this afternoon in Cincinnati, is the closest team to being eliminated from the playoffs. The Bucs have 80 losses and the wild card leading Brewers have 80 wins. And the Brewers start a four game series at home against the Padres tonight.
Speaking of the Padres, if San Diego is swept in Milwaukee, that would bring them to 90 losses and would eliminate them from the playoffs unless the Dodgers-DBacks series ends in a 2-1 Dodgers edge.
