    The final few days of the regular season are winding down. How is your team doing? It looks like Astros, Dodgers, Nats, Cubs and Indians will go far. Not sure about the Yankees or Boston.

    Do you think that your team will make the post season or maybe just the wild card? Could Arizona be the team to win it all?

    Discuss...

    Watching the Cubs hopefully clinch it tonight. Magic number is one.

    I have doubts that they'll go as far as last year, but you can't win if you don't get in.

    Toronto is taking Sale to the fences and leading 5-1 in 5th. I think Red Sox are going down slow.

    The Royals came down with a case of "how do you play this game?":) So...

    Therefor, I'd like to see the Indians or the Astros in the Series. Indians, so they can get what they missed last year and Astros because of how hard they played the Royals in 2015.

    Kershaw pitched well in his last start. Darvish pitched well last night. Wood pitches tonight and Hill tomorrow. Both had great 5-6 inning starts last games and longer.

    I'm so curious to see what the Dodgers do. With the roster they've had for the last 6-7 years it blows my mind that they haven't gone further in the postseason.

    Being a Boston fan it pains me to say that they are on the verge of imploding. Again. Just don't think they have enough for the long haul. Again.

    Was at the Mets/Braves game tonight where the Mets won, but no post season love there.

    Home team (Washington) is in! I have been so dang busy I have no idea what our prospects are for the postseason...don't even know who we'll play. Looking forward to listening (don't have cable TV) to the games for sure though!

    The Astros clinched home field in the ALDS, with a small chance to take the 1 seed back from the Tribe. I say a small chance because it is mathematically possible, but with 4 or 5 games left they need to win at least two more than Cleveland. I just dont see the Indians dropping that many.

    It look like we will host Boston next week, should be a great match up. I always root for my teams, but being a long time Houston sports fan, I possess a healthy pessimism that they will come up short.

    Like @william tele said, we had control over the 2015 series against the Royals. They could not close the deal.

    Maybe this is the year they can break the mold.

    They had a good run after the All-Star break, but can't seem to get it together now. Still 3 games ahead of NY though.

    I'm hoping Nunez can get back in the lineup for more than 2 at-bats, they need him badly now. Sale is running out of steam, or has for a few games recently. He's still crazy ridiculous but he's getting beat up. And what's up with Hanley? He needs to pick it up. They may make it pretty far but I just don't see them as winning it all. A lot of pieces need to be glued back together.

    Agreed - Hanley is nothing like Ortiz was for a DH. If Porcello can get the win tonight and Yanks lose, there might still be a little hope.

    Astros set a record for runs in a three game series against the Rangers. I think they are an offense to reckoned with in the play-offs. But like fendertx, I've been disappointed too many times to be overly optimistic.

    Astro's killed it at Fenway last night. Luckily with the Yankees loss, the magic number is now 1 to clinch division for Sox.

    If the Astros have another game like that (or if Boston does)...1 may be 1 too many! That was just a crusher last night. Ugh

    For the record, they beat the Padres 10-0.

    My Phils had sole possession of the basement for most of the season, but now I see the Giants and Tigers are giving them a run for the money.

    The Dodgers and Indians would be an interesting WS, but we all know that those chances are slim.

    It would be fun to see a dark horse slip in there.
