1

56-71 - 1/20
One year after Boston’s epic 2012 meltdown, the Red Sox secured home-field advantage throughout the playoffs and are the favorites to win their third World Series title in a decade.

69-57 2 1/9
Matt Carpenter fell one hit short of 200 for the season, but at least his Cards clinched home-field advantage through the NLCS after winning six straight to end the regular season.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
3

67-61 3 1/10
The Braves will rely on Jason Heyward to continue his consistency at the top of the lineup during the playoffs to bolster an offense that has been inconsistent at times.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
4

74-52 2 2/17
The A’s started September in second place, but won the division title thanks in part to Josh Donaldson’s big month at the plate. Oakland hopes his bat will stay hot into the playoffs.

5

72-57 2 1/25
Matt Kemp won’t be playing for the Dodgers in the playoffs, but they have survived most of the season without him … not to mention his absence left the door open for Yasiel Puig to reach the majors.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
6

65-62 2 1/27
Baseball is back in Pittsburgh with the Pirates ready to host their first playoff game in two decades led by MVP candidate Andrew McCutchen.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
7

68-57 2 2/11
The Tigers ended their season on a sour note after getting no-hit by the Marlins, but fans shouldn’t be worried about Detroit’s offensive power in the playoffs with Miguel Cabrera and his .348 batting average.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
8

64-62 2 5/26
The Indians staggered into September looking finished in the AL playoff race, but after a 21-6 month, including 10 wins in a row to wrap up the regular season, Cleveland is the team to beat with the top wild-card spot.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
9

62-65 - 2/22
David Price’s season started slow, but he showed exactly why he is the reigning AL Cy Young Award winner after carrying the Rays in a one-game tiebreaker victory over the Texas Rangers to earn a wild-card berth.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
10

49-77 3 1/14
Texas put up a good fight winning its last seven games to force a tiebreaker game against the Rays, but Tampa Bay’s David Price made sure the Rangers would go no further with his complete-game masterpiece.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
11

61-67 4 2/13
Momentum is not on the Reds’ side after stumbling into the playoffs losing five consecutive games, including a sweep by wild-card opponent Pittsburgh.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
12

70-56 - 5/26
Streaky would be the best way to describe the Royals season in one word, but Kansas City has plenty of reasons to be optimistic for 2014 after finishing with its best record since 1989.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
13

73-53 2 3/18
The Nationals made a late push down the stretch to stay in playoff contention until the final week, but Washington’s early season struggles proved to be too much to overcome.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
14

73-52 1 4/15
Besides Chris Tillman, the Orioles’ starting rotation was the main issue behind a failed attempt to return to the postseason.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
15

64-61 1 3/23
Mariano Rivera unfortunately won’t be able to extend his legacy into the 2013 playoffs after the Yankees fell short of their typical lofty expectations.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
16

53-75 1 7/17
The Diamondbacks led the NL West for 69 days of the season, but struggled to consistently find wins as the Dodgers surged past Arizona in the second half.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
17

59-67 1 12/29
The Padres played great baseball at times this year, especially for a “rebuilding” team. If it wasn’t for injuries and suspensions to several keys players, San Diego could have had a Cinderella season.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
18

67-59 1 1/23
A third-place finish in the NL West and San Francisco’s first losing record since 2008 wasn’t what the Giants had in mind for defending their 2012 World Series title in an overall disappointing season.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
19

76-50 3 2/26
Mike Trout became only the third major leaguer player since 1900 with 190 hits, 100 walks and 30 stolen bases after hitting a home run in the Angels final game of the season.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets

71-56 1 15/30
Everything that could go wrong did go wrong for the Brewers this season from Ryan Braun’s suspension to Corey Hart and Aramis Ramirez’s injury problems.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
21

65-62 2 8/27
For a team that made huge additions in the offseason, a 74-88 fifth-place finish in the AL East was a major disappointment. It didn’t help that Toronto led the majors in games lost to injury with more than 1,300 in all.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
22

50-76 - 4/23
The Rockies’ season took a nose-dive early, but at least Michael Cuddyer had a great year, winning the NL batting title with his .331 batting average.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
23

56-71 3 12/27
The Phillies posted their first losing record since 2002. Will Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg be the man to lead Philadelphia back to relevancy.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
24

68-58 1 17/27
There are reasons to be hopeful for the future in Seattle. The offense improved, hitting its most home runs since 2000, and the rotation will continue to be strong with Felix Hernandez and Hisashi Iwakuma.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
25

60-68 1 16/29
Matt Harvey was lights out for the Mets this season, but will their new ace still have the same spark next year with an injured elbow that has benched the All-Star since August?
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
26

55-72 - 20/28
Cubs finish last in the NL Central and Dale Sveum becomes the first manager to lose his job after leading Chicago to 41 losses in its final 59 games.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
27

56-70 - 19/27
After three straight years of 96-plus losses, Ron Gardenhire’s future in Minnesota looked bleak with his contract set to expire after the season, but the Twins extended the manager through 2015 in a surprising move.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
28

59-68 - 14/29
The White Sox took an unexpected step back this season with a soft-hitting lineup not doing the team any favors in route to a 99-loss season.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
29

63-63 - 27/30
There wasn’t much to root for during the Marlins’ 100-loss season, but at least Henderson Alvarez’s wild no-hitter against Detroit ended the season on a positive note.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
30

54-74 - 28/30
After finishing the season with 15 losses in a row, the Astros complete their worst season in club history … but with the third consecutive No. 1 pick in the draft, things have to be looking up soon, right?
