If the Playoffs Started Today

Even though the 2010 Major League Baseball season is mathematically past the halfway point (81 games), the All-Star Game is recognized as the traditional midpoint. Despite being too early to accurately predict the postseason picture, here's a glimpse at how the playoffs would look if the season ended today.

National League

Eastern Division Champion

Atlanta Braves

Central Division Champion
Cincinnati Reds

Western Division Champion
San Diego Padres

NL Wild Card
Colorado Rockies/Los Angeles Dodgers (tied)

American League

Eastern Division Champion

New York Yankees

Central Division Champion
Chicago White Sox

Western Division Champion
Texas Rangers

AL Wild Card
Tampa Bay Rays

What's your predictions on who the Divisional winners will be at the end of the regular season?

I thought about your question during the day. Here are my predictions:

NL East - Atlanta Braves (I think they'll hold off the Mets and Phillies)
NL Central - St. Louis Cardinals (Better team than the Reds)
NL West - San Diego Padres (Dodgers might make a run)

AL East - New York Yankees (They're putting it all together)
AL Central - Minnesota Twins (The White Sox made a run the last few weeks)
AL West - Texas Rangers (Cliff Lee might be all the difference)

That being said, who knows.
