The Seattle Mariners are currently in the middle of a massive 4-game series against the team tied with us in the Wild Card standings: the Oakland Athletics. ESPN currently gives both us and Oakland a 1.5% chance at making the playoffs, so a lot needs to break our way.
First, a brief snapshot of where the Wild Card race is. With 1.5 weeks left in the season, the Boston Red Sox currently lead the Wild Card race with a 1.5G lead over the Toronto Blue Jays. The New York Yankees find themselves 0.5G behind Toronto, with the Oakland A’s and our beloved Seattle Mariners tied at 3G back from the second Wild Card spot. Let’s take a look at what each team faces down the final stretch of the 2021 season.
