A full 25 weeks of major league baseball are in the books for 2007 and four divisions and six playoff spots are still up for grabs. The vast majority of the intrigue is in the National League, where nothing has been settled, with several indicators in place. The American League has Cleveland and Los Angeles primed for playoff baseball after clinching division titles and now trying to secure home field advantage. Bostonís lead over New York is down a single game in the loss column, let the fun begin.

Arizona and San Diego closed out the home portion of their schedules and will continue duel on the road. The Diamondbacks regained possession of first place in the NL West taking two of three over the Dodgers. The Padres on the other hand were laid out by Colorado three straight games, scoring a grand total of six runs. That is not very good news as they embark on seven game road trip, where they are 38-36 (+ 0.8 units). San Diegoís ill-timed losing streak also places them in peril for wild card race, being only one game ahead of Philadelphia. The D-Backs amazing story continues, fighting not only to win the division, yet possibly have the best record in the senior circuit despite being out-scored on the season (690 runs scored -704 allowed). Arizona catches a potential break traveling to Pittsburgh who has lost nine in a row. Tip of the cap goes to Colorado who has won eight in a row and is two games back in the wild card race. If the Rockies can take series against Dodgers, they could make a very interesting weekend at home hosting Arizona. Colorado has already set a franchise record for wins in a season with six games to go.

No team is baseball is more glad to see home than the Milwaukee Brewers. The Brew Crew lost three of four in Atlanta, to fall three games behind the Chicago. Milwaukee finished 32-49 (-17.1 units) on the road, which if they fail to catch the Cubs will be there undoing. Ned Yost club has been special at home with National League best 47-27 record. It would appear the Brewers need to win final seven games and Chicago would have to split six road games to force a one game playoff. With the Cubs history, anything is possible as they travel to Florida and Cincinnati.

The Mets are trying to hold on and save the season, after winning last three games against Florida. New York returns home to Shea Stadium where they are pedestrian 40-34 (-11.4 units), in other words not a lock. Willie Randolphís squad will be large favorites almost every day hosting Washington and Florida, who are a combined 29 games below .500 in the visitorís uniforms. Donít write off Philadelphia just yet for the NL East or wild card chase. The Phillies just concluded an incredibly clutch long road trip with 8-2 record and have six home games left. Philly is 43-32 at Citizens Bank Park, and only Colorado scores more at home in the National League then Philadelphia, who pounds out 5.6 per game. The Phillies finish with Atlanta and Nationals this week.

The Indians and Angels each clinched division titles in final home game of the season. Los Angeles end up with the best home record in the big leagues at 54-27 (+11.1 units) and trails the Tribe by a single game for best record in the American League. From MLB wagering point of view having home field advantage would seem to be a big deal considering how each team has played. However facing the Yankees, who are 15-5 this month, if they finish as the wild card team is not what appears to be a reward in the first round of the playoffs.

The Yankees are all but in the postseason and have set their sights on division crown being down one game in loss column to Boston. The Yankees in order to pass the Red Sox will have to do it on the road with trips to Tampa Bay and Baltimore. Boston, who is 28-25 since July 29, has six Fenway Park home games left on the schedule. They have a pair with Oakland and four with Minnesota. Boston probably wished they could reschedule a couple of the night games to afternoon tilts, as they are 31-14 in the daytime.
