Out of! 5 teams are officially eliminated from the MLB playoffs

While in baseball nothing is ever completely certain and at any moment even the most unlikely can happen, the truth is that trends and forecasts are often correct and at the start of the current MLB season, as well as how there were favorites to reach the postseason and fight for the championship, there were also to be coleros and sotaneros of their respective divisions and leagues.

At this point in the regular season, although there are no teams officially qualified for the playoffs yet, there are already those that are mathematically eliminated, with five so far that have absolutely no chance of sneaking into the postseason spots: Los Arizona Diamondbacks, Colorado Rockies, Baltimore Orioles, Pittsburgh Pirates and Texas Rangers.

These 5 teams are officially marked as eliminated from the playoff contest, with each one of them at the bottom of their respective divisions with the exception of the Rockies, who are second to last in the West of the National League, which has been dominated by the Giants, Dodgers and Padres.

The next team to be eliminated would be the Chicago Cubs, since if they fall one more game behind in the fight for the wild card, they would be mathematically eliminated from any contention by the playoffs, followed by the Kansas City Royals and the Minnesota Twins. who are 6 games away from being completely out of the playoffs.

I am a fan of the San Francisco Giants, a number one defender of Barry Bonds and a critic of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy.

I lived in Australia for a while; i survived giant spiders, tasmanian devils, and fought a kangaroo and didn’t die trying.
