Both the American League and National League playoff races are coming down to the wire. Some clear favorites have emerged in the race for the various division titles, but the Wild Card hunt remains tight in both leagues.

The New York Yankees have gone from being the hottest teams in baseball to their season now being on life support and out of the Wild Card spots in the American League. They sit 1.5 games back of the second Wild Card spot. The San Diego Padres have been equally cold, now falling 3.5 games back of the Wild Card in the National League, with the surging St. Louis Cardinals taking over that spot.

While the MLB playoff picture can change on a daily basis, it's good the know where things stand at the beginning of each week.
