Movements of note since the last playoff prediction a few weeks ago:
- Boston falls to AL seed no. 2 with 93 wins. The Angels climb two spots and take the top seed with 96 wins.
- The White Sox win 92 games yet fall to seed no. 3, but Tampa retains the wild card with 91 wins.
- The Phillies fall completely out of the playoffs and cede the second NL seed to the New York Mets, who win 86 games this year.
- Milwaukee's 88 wins kick out St. Louis (at 84 wins) for the National League wild card -- and the Brewers make it a close I-94 NL Championship series as well.
