The Major League Baseball playoff picture finally is set…

National League East - Atlanta Braves
National League Central - St. Louis Cardinals
National League West - Los Angeles Dodgers
Wild Cards - Milwaukee Brewers, Washington Nationals


American League East - New York Yankees
American League Central - Minnesota Twins
American League West - Houston Astros
Wild Cards - Tampa Bay Rays, Oakland Athletics

If I had to guess, it'll end up being the Dodgers vs. the Astros in the World Series. But that's hardly making a risky bet.
