Here’s what the playoff brackets would look like if the postseason started today. National League No. 1 – Atlanta Braves First-Round Bye No. 2 – Arizona Diamondbacks First-Round Bye No. 3 – Milwaukee Brewers No. 6 – Miami Marlins No. 4 – Los Angeles Dodgers No. 5 – Pittsburgh Pirates An 8-2 run has propelled the Arizona Diamondbacks up the National League standings.

There are very few things that make Scott Bonnett panic. Spending the last 15 years making sure the Pittsburgh Pirates have whatever they need whenever they need it has taught the longtime equipment manager the importance of being prepared for anything. Bonnett found himself in the dugout in Seattle late last month watching Andrew McCutchen round third following a leadoff home run against the Mariners when joy was quickly replaced by panic.
