Cubs hunt into playoffs, defending champs out and possibly more tomorrow

a San Francisco Giants loss to the Oakland A's not only eliminated the defending world series champs from post season, but it put the Chicago Cubs into post season as well. so we will have new world series champions. tomorrow the New York Mets and Toronto Blue Jays could be playoff bound. the Mets could win the division with a win or Washington loss. the Jays could clinch a berth with a win or an Los Angeles Angels loss. that is tomorrow.
