Covering the impact of coronavirus on the sports world
The 2021 Major League Baseball season is entering its final month, and the playoff picture is starting to take shape. While some teams, like the White Sox and Brewers, appear to have their divisions wrapped up, there are going to be plenty of fascinating races in September. Who will win the Dodgers vs. Giants tussle in the NL West? Will we get a Yankees vs. Red Sox matchup in the AL Wild Card Game? Can the Phillies or Mets make a surprise surge to catch the Braves in the NL East?
We’ll find out the answers to all of those questions before the postseason gets started Oct. 5. But it’s also worth asking, what would the MLB playoff picture look like if the season ended today?
