The MLB postseason is just around the corner, and it is going to be a good one. The postseason consists of the MLB playoffs in which teams who have made the playoffs compete against each other to make it to the World Series. The teams who have made it this year are the Oakland A’s, Tampa Bay Rays, New York Yankees, Minnesota Twins, Houston Astros, St. Louis Cardinals, Atlanta Braves, Milwaukee Brewers, Washington Nationals, and the Los Angeles Dodgers. The American League Wild Card spot is going to be a eventful one. The A’s have a spot to play in it, but the Rays and Indians are tied for it, so it’s the race for the American League Wild Card spot. This entire MLB season has been surprising. The A’s, Rays, and the Nationals were never expected to make the playoffs again because of their past teams, but this year is different. Those teams are here to show the baseball community what they can do, but fans also have to take into consideration the top teams that were expected to make the playoffs again. The Yankees, Cardinals, Braves, Brewers, Twins, Dodgers, and Astros were all expected to make the playoffs, so the underdogs are going to have to step up their game to beat these tenacious teams. Sadly, some teams have not made it to the playoffs because of some unfortunate events, such as the Cubs. They have just recently had star players, Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo, go down with injuries that prevented them from going to the playoffs. Also, there are some teams who have potential, but just can’t make it happen, such teams are the Angels, Padres, Diamondbacks, Giants, and Mets. These teams need to work to improve their pitching, player positioning, and overall management. But all in all, the MLB postseason has been incredible to watch. This year, the MLB postseason is sure to be a blast!
