NL playoff predictions

As of this posting, the American League playoffs are all but set.

The NL, however, is a totally different story.

So, with six days left in baseball's regular season, here's one man's (uneducated) guess as to how the NL postseason tournament will shake out.

NL East -- The Mets will hold off the hard-charging Phillies thanks to a generous schedule. New York faces three under-.500 teams at home while the Phillies host Atlanta and Washington.

NL Central -- The Cubs will wrap the division up by Thursday.

NL West -- Arizona should be the first NL team to clinch the division as San Diego is, cue Tom Petty, free falling.

NL Wild-Card -- The Phillies and Rockies will pass San Diego with the City of Brotherly Love earning the right to October baseball for the first time since John Kruk, Lenny Dykstra, Darren Daulton and a slim Curt Schilling were rocking Veterans Stadium.
