  WHAT EACH TEAM NEEDS TO GET IN (ONLY TWO WILL GET IN) webmaster@pennantsolutions.com          
               
  MIL - WIN and they're in; ahead of PHI, hold Tie Breaker vs. SF            
  STL - WIN 1 and they're in (today or Monday); even if they lose 3, get in if PHI & SF BOTH LOSE For More Details,          
  S F - WIN and STL Wins; beat PHI & MIL outright (which they need, since they lose ALL TIE-BREAKERS) Click on the Links Below          
  PHI - A MIRACLE (WIN, MIL LOSES, S F LOSES); gets them into 3-Way Tie, Prevail via TIE-BREAKERS AL DIVISION STDGS

Question from 2017: Why did NL Office take 2 tries to Determine LA's Tue. 9-12-17 Playoff Clinch Requirements NL DIVISION STDGS        
  (according to Bill Shaikin of the L A Times)? We may never know. NL WILD CARD STDGS        
Previous Headlines NL 2020 ELIM SUMMARY        
             
1 TEAMS THAT ARE ALREADY IN:          
  L A, S D (1,2 in West), ATL, MIA (1,2 in East; MIA holds tie-breaker over PHI)          
  Two Other Teams Have Clinched Playoff Berths, But Their Placement is Not Yet Determined: Cubs, Reds          
  The CARDINALS Are The Joker Here !          
  A. They haven't clinched anything, BUT Could Win the Division (Go 4-0, & they hold TB vs. Cubs)          
  B. Could tie Reds at 30, 31, or 32 Wins, knock Reds into WC via 6-4 Head to Head TB          
  C. Go 1-3 (only W vs. DET), tie w/ MIL at 30-30 - MIL wins that TB, Cards could be out, depending on PHI, SF          
  D. Only W vs. DET, 3-way tie w/ MIL, CIN at 30-30 - MIL loses that TB & could be out, depending on PHI, SF          
           
  MLB Assures Us Reds ARE IN - so they must control TB vs. (PHI, SF) because PHI could win 30, SF 30 or 31          
             
2 REMAINING CONTENDERS: STL, SF, PHI, MIL, NYM (ONLY TWO WILL GET IN)          
  A. As indicated above, STL controls its own destiny; so does SF (31 W puts them out of reach of PHI, MIL, NYM)          
  B. PHI trails STL, SF 29 W to 28 W, even w/ MIL; if tied, they control TB vs. SF, MIL, NYM - not sure about STL          
  C. MIL even w/ PHI (28 W) - holds TB vs. SF, MIL needs to sweep Cards for that TB          
  D. NYM - Still in this at 26 W? YES ! Go 3-0, holds TB vs. SF, MIL, but not PHI - STL? Not Sure.          
  In fact, There Could Still Be A FOUR-WAY TIE at 29 W - What Happens Then ? Who Knows ?          
             
  WE ARE BACK and OFF TO THE (PENNANT) RACES !!!          
             
  FINALLY GOT THE AL POSTED AROUND 5:30 PDT - AND NOT A MOMENT TOO SOON !!          
             
  BOSTON IS OUR FIRST WINNER !! (LOSER) - ELIMINATED FROM 2ND IN AL EAST (MAG. NO. STILL 4 !!!!)        
     
  PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE FULLY COVID-COMPLIANT (UNLIKE SOME SITES)    
  THAT MEANS, IN ADDITION TO PRACTICING MASKING, DISTANCING, ETC.,    
  WE FOCUS ON ELIMINATION FROM 2ND IN THE DIVISION, NOT 1ST,  
  BECAUSE 2ND STILL GETS YOU A TICKET TO THE BIG DANCE.  
  SO WHEN SHOPPING FOR A PENNANT ANALYZER, INSIST ON TRUE PLAYOFF ELIMINATION
