MLB Postseason soon

With the MLB season winding down to the final games of the 162 games this season there are still many questions are still to be solved. The American League teams are an almost automatic bid to the 2010 Playoffs like the Yankees,Rays,Rangers,and Twins. On the other hand, the NL is pretty much chaos. Not one team is safe:

National League:

EAST:The Phillies lead the Braves by only .5 games; very close with the Braves having a series with the Nats to come while the Phillies play the Marlins
CENTRAL: The Reds have probably been the surprise team of the league with a very comfortable 6.5 game lead over the Cards; The Cards have a series coming up with the Cubs while the Reds start a series with the Diamondbacks
WEST: Probably the most chaotic division with a tie between the early start Padres and the catching up Giants, not far being are the Rockies who are only 1.5 games back;The Rockies play the Padres in an upcoming series next while the Giants host the Dodgers

WILDCARD: If the season ended TODAY, the Braves would be the wildcard winners with a 1.5 lead over the Padres and Giants. The thing is that one of those two teams could win their division and get an automatic bid to October. The Rockies who are fighting with the Padres and Giants are 3 games back and the Cardinals are 7.5 games back with the best chance at catching the Reds for the Division. Remember also the Phillies could be in the Wildcard being only .5 games ahead of the leading Braves
