The final weekend of the MLB regular season is setting up to be a ton of fun.
Many teams are fighting for a playoff spot, and seeding is still up for grabs.
The Wild Card standings in both leagues are full of teams that hope to make a last-ditch effort to get in.
The NL in particular has three teams fighting for the final spot.
It is the Miami Marlins, Chicago Cubs, and Cincinnati Reds all trying to get in.

The Marlins and Cubs have four games remaining while the Reds have three.
Cincinnati needs a lot of help to get in.
More than likely, the Reds will not be in the playoffs.
So between the Cubs and Marlins, whoever plays better over the last four games gets in.
Chicago will travel to the Milwaukee Brewers starting on Friday.
The Marlins will square off against the Pittsburgh Pirates this weekend.
Neither the Marlins nor the Cubs were expected to be a playoff team this year.
But, they have outperformed expectations by a large amount.
It will be interesting to see which team can play better under pressure this weekend.
These are must-win games and making the playoffs is quite a big prize on the line.
