With exactly one week left in the regular season, all eyes are on the MLB pennant races. What that means is that the winners of every division, along with one wild card team from both the American and National Leagues, get set to compete for the biggest prize in baseball: a World Series championship! My Cardinals already clinched the NL Central, but let’s take a look at who else is preparing to play fall ball.
New York Yankees lead East (ew)
Boston Red Sox 8.5 games back
