"It’s fair to not assign as much meaning to these last two weeks as we might to this type of finish in another year. However, if you put your blinders on and just enjoy it for what it is, the race for the NL playoffs should be entertaining, if not necessarily good. Nearly every day will feature multiple games between teams in this group, ones scrambling for 29 wins and the chance to assemble a two-game winning streak at the right time."
