If you're anything like me, you never really know what exactly the playoff schedule has in store. This year's added Wild Card team, among other changes, has added to the confusion. So, to the best of my understanding, here is what the National League playoff bracket would look like if the regular season ended yesterday. As you can see, the Nationals have the No. 1 seed with the best record, with the Reds at number two and the Giants at No. 3. In my opinion, that's a good match-up for Cincinnati. The Giants are now without Melky Cabrera, and ace Madison Bumgarner has been struggling as of late. San Francisco, too, is a much better option in my mind than having to face a postseason-Cardinals squad or the recently-purchased All-Star lineup of Los Angeles (Dodgers only one game back of NL Wild Card spot).
