Who makes the playoffs first?
I've asked this question in years past, and it's always interesting to see the answer unfold. A few years ago, Milwaukee and Texas were on the list and Minnesota was nowhere near it.
My vote goes to the Padres. They were somewhat close a couple years ago, and they always seem to build up for a 2-3 year run. The extra wildcard only helps their chances. Plus, I still think the NL West is a weak division. The AL East and West teams on the list will have a very hard time overtaking the other teams in their divisions. The Royals will probably get some votes, but I just can't go with them.
