1 St. Louis Cardinals St. Louis Cardinals 78-45
Losing Randal Grichuk for any length is time is a big hit for the Cards.
2 Pittsburgh Pirates Pittsburgh Pirates 74-48
It goes without saying the Pirates will need to find a new first baseman this winter.
3 Kansas City Royals Kansas City Royals 75-48
Mike Moustakas is having a good season, but the breakout talk has proved premature.
4 Chicago Cubs Chicago Cubs 71-51
A big reason why Chicago is where it is? Good play in one-run games.

Bo Schultz is one of the season's biggest individual surprises.

Poor Chris Capuano keeps getting moved on and off the roster.

Will Harris has been a heck of a waiver claim.
9 Los Angeles Dodgers Los Angeles Dodgers 67-56

Odd to see a team change third-base coaches this late in the season, but that's what the Dodgers did by hiring Ron Roenicke.

Marlon Byrd gives the Giants some outfield help.

Fair to say the D'backs came out ahead on the Mark Trumbo-Welington Castillo trade.
17 San Diego Padres San Diego Padres 61-63

Jedd Gyorko doesn't really fit as a starting shortstop, but the Padres might as well try whatever at this point.
18 Washington Nationals Washington Nationals 62-61

You wonder if Matt Williams is increasingly on the hot seat.
19 Detroit Tigers Detroit Tigers 59-64
James McCann might just be Detroit's starting catcher in 2016.
20 Chicago White Sox Chicago White Sox 58-64

One of the few things the White Sox have done well: win in extra innings. Who knows why?

The Braves will have to rebuild their bullpen this winter. Again.

Chris Bassitt has done a nice job.
