The Colorado Rockies and the Chicago
#1
Cubs still have work to do to win the National League West and Central division titles Carlos Baerga Jersey , respectively, but both helped their cause with victories Thursday.The Rockies won their seventh straight game with a 5-3 win over the Philadelphia Phillies, and they head into the final weekend of the season with a one-game lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers.Dave Roberts and the Dodgers (88-71) were idle Thursday as they traveled from Arizona to San Francisco. They will conclude the regular season with a three-game series against the Giants, their traditional and oft-times hated rival.The Rockies (89-70) conclude their regular season with a three-game series at Coors Field with the Washington Nationals.The Cubs go into the final weekend with a one-game lead over the Brewers.Jim Young/Associated PressThe Cubs (93-66) picked up a 3-0 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates at Wrigley Field, and they lead the Milwaukee Brewers (92-67) by one game with the final weekend of the season at hand.The Cubs and Brewers clinched postseason appearances Wednesday when the Brewers beat the St. Louis Cardinals (87-72), but the two teams are in a tight battle for the NL Central title.The Brewers appear to have the better matchup in the final series of the year as they host the Detroit Tigers (64-94). The Cubs close the regular season with a three-game series against the Cardinals.The Brewers would need to pick up two full games in the standingsto win the division outright. If they pick up one game during the final series, the two teams would be tied and they would meet in a one-game tiebreaker at Wrigley Field.If that happens, that game would not be considered a playoff game. It is Game 163, and the statistics accumulated in that game would be considered part of the regular season.The team that does not win the division title will play in the NL Wild Card Game.Kyle Newman KyleNewmanDPWith NL West race coming down to the wire, second-place Dodgers counted their chickens before they hatched as #Rockies caught fire, jumped L.A. in the standings: i4QQwmfxOS #MLBIf the Dodgers can't gain any ground on the Rockies, Colorado would clinch its first division title. If the Dodgers pick up one game, those two teams would meet in Game 163 at Dodger Stadium, while the Dodgers would win the division outright if they pick up two games over the final weekend.If the Rockies win the National League West crown Yonder Alonso Jersey , the Dodgers and the Cardinals will battle for the other wild-card spot.Going into the weekend, the Dodgers are 88-71, one game ahead of the 87-72 St. Louis Cardinals.While the Rockies are surging and have an excellent opportunity to win the division, they have not clinched a playoff spot yet. Their magic number is two to ensure they will play postseason baseball. The Dodgers have a magic number of three.The Cubs have a magic number of three to clinch the division title.If the Rockies, Dodgers and Cardinals all have the same record at the conclusion of Sunday's action, the Rockies and Dodgers would play for the division title, while the loser would play the Cardinals Tuesday for a wild-card berth.The NL Wild Card game is scheduled for Tuesday, but in the event of the three-team tie mentioned above, it would be played Wednesday.The Atlanta Braves (89-70) have clinched the NL East title, and they cannot earn the National League's No. 1 seed since their maximum win total is 92, while the Cubs already have 93 victories.The Rockies cannot win more than 92 games, so that means the Cubs or Brewers will end up with the top seed.PredictionsThe Brewers have won four games in a row and seven of 10, and they have an excellent chance of sweeping the Tigers in the final series.It will be difficult for the Cubs to do the same to the Cardinals. While St. Louis cannot be happy after being swept at home by Milwaukee this week, the Cards should be able to win at least one game or possibly two against the Cubs.The Brewers and Cubs will end up in a one-game playoff for the NL Central title http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authent...rez-jersey , and the home team would certainly have the best chance to win that game.In the NL West, the Dodgers will have a difficult time with the Giants, and nothing would make San Francisco and its fans happier than knocking the Dodgers out of the playoffs. San Francisco wins two of three in the final series.If that happens, the Rockies would need just one win against the Nationals to clinch the division title. We see them winning at least two and earning their first division flag.Here's how we see the National League playing out:Atlanta Braves earn the No. 3 seed as the NL East championsChicago Cubs defeat the Milwaukee Brewers in one-game playoff and earn No. 1 seed as NL Central championsBrewers earn No. 1 wild-card spotColorado Rockies earn the No. 2 seed as the NL West champions.Los Angeles earn the No. 2 wild-card spot. We're on the eve of the MLB trade deadline and the rumors are reaching a boiling point.We've seen so many trades go down already that it's hard to believe there could be more.But that's the thing with baseball鈥攖here's always more deals to be made, especially with a number of teams vying for a playoff spot.There are several players with rumors surrounding them, but we will look at three here that really stick out.Let's start with a veteran outfielder. Maybin a Stopgap for Yankees?With New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge out for a few weeks with a wrist injury, the Yankees could take to the trade market to help ease the burden.According to George A. King III of theNew York Post,one player that could make sense is Miami Marlins outfielder Cameron Maybin, who is reportedly available per a "person with knowledge of the Marlins' plan."Maybin is in the final year of his contract with the Marlins, so if they could get something in return for the 31-year-old outfielder, they'd likely be happy to.His statistics aren't anything overly impressive, with a .250/.338/.339 line with three home runs, but again, he'd be just to help until Judge gets back.Bringing in Maybin would allow for the Yankees to rotate Giancarlo Stanton at designated hitter Bradley Zimmer Jersey , and they could use Maybin's ability in the field instead.What will it take for the Yankees to make this kind of move for an outfielder to use in the meantime?"They will have to establish the value," a Yankees scout said, per King.Padres Favorites for ArcherWith each passing day, the prospect of the Tampa Bay Rays dealing pitcher Chris Archer seems to grow.According to Jon Heyman ofFancred,the Rays had scouts on hand to see Yankees prospect Justus Sheffield pitch, but Heyman still thinks Padres are the favorite:Jon Heyman JonHeymanrays had two scouts watching top yankees lip prospect justus sheffield yesterday, adding intrigue to chris archer rumors (as Joelsherman1 mentioned). another scout said: quot;was just ok ... fighting fastball command.quot; padres still seen as current favorites for archer -- if he goesNo matter who is interested in him or who gets him, Archer has found the rumors unsettling, according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.Archer has an ERA of 4.31 across 17 games started. He's having a down year, but he's just 29 years old and is signed through the 2021 season with a team option heading into the 2021 season.The Padres would want Archer as they load up for the future with their slew of young talent coming up through the ranks.Being the subject of rumors can be difficult for players.Archer did not hold back on his thoughts, either."I've got the baseball in my hand. And now my career is not in my hands. That's fine, that's the business part of it. But that's why it's unsettling," said Archer.Pirates Want GausmanAfter dealing Brad Brach to the Atlanta Braves, the Baltimore Orioles have dealt three of the four of their walk-year assets http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authent...yer-jersey , including third basemen Manny Machado and pitcher Zach Britton.The last being outfielder Adam Jones, but it doesn't appear he'll be moving.However, the Orioles aren't done there it seems.According to Rob Biertempfel ofThe Athletic, the Orioles could look to trade their more controllable assets, such as pitcher Kevin Gausman, who the Pittsburgh Pirates are reportedly "chasing" after:Rob Biertempfel RobBiertempfelWith Brach deal done, #Orioles likely now will pivot to mulling offers for their controllable guys. If #Pirates continue to chase Gausman, perhaps theyll expand parameters to see if Mychal Givens can be part of a package.Adding Gausman would bring in another young pitcher with numerous years of team control.Fellow pitcher Ivan Nova has just one more year left on his deal, and Nick Kingham is still young, too.Gausman could be a solid addition to their rotation for the foreseeable future.Will the Pirates give up the assets for him, though? That's the biggest looming question.
