Happy Trails, to You...Until 2013...

As we get closer to the end of the regular season, fewer and fewer teams will be playoff-eligible. Their playoff candles will be snuffed, leaving the teams virtually nothing to play for...save pride, effing their rivals, and draft position. As of today, one team has been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. I'll try to keep track of each team's fate over the next two weeks, as the pretenders fall.

Goodnight, sweet princes.

Teams eliminated from postseason play thus far (once your name is here, you're out entirely):

Houston Astros

Chicago Cubs

Minnesota Twins

Cleveland Indians

Boston Red Sox

Colorado Rockies

Seattle Mariners

Toronto Blue Jays

Miami Marlins

New York Mets

Star-divide

Hanging by a thread (either division or wild card eligibility has been lost)

Eliminated from AL Divisions: None.

Eliminated from NL East: Philadelphia Phillies.

Eliminated from NL Central: Pittsburgh Pirates, Milwaukee Brewers.

Eliminated from NL West: San Diego Padres.

Eliminated from AL Wild Card entirely: Kansas City Royals, .

Eliminated from 1st NL Wild Card: San Diego Padres, New York Mets.

Eliminated from NL Wild Card entirely: None.

Teams on the ropes

(9/21/2012): Kansas City Royals, out of playoffs w/ CHW win or KC loss; St. Louis Cardinals, eliminated from NL Central w/ CIN win and STL loss; Arizona Diamondbacks, eliminated from NL West w/ SFG win or AZ loss; Diamondbacks, eliminated from 1st NL Wild Card w/ ATL win and AZ loss; Pittsburgh Pirates, eliminated from 1st NL Wild Card w/ ATL win and PIT loss.

I'll try (and likely fail) to update this daily...
