Records vs. NL Playoff Teams

Title Track

If the season were to end today, the Atlanta Braves, Philadelphia Phillies, San Diego Padres and St. Louis Cardinals would be going to the playoffs. Only four teams have a combined record of .500 or better against those teams. They are the Phillies, the Dodgers, the Mets and the Padres. If you remove the Phillies from the equation (since they only have a half game lead in the Wild Card), there are still only four teams with .500 or better records against the division leaders. They are the Padres, Phillies, Dodgers and Cubs.

The Padres are a combined 9-3 against the Braves and Cardinals. Only one other team can claim a winning record against the Braves and Cardinals this season.

Basically, you have to like the Padres' chances in the playoffs because they have beaten these teams when no one else has.

Some Braves players have been quoted saying they'd rather play the Padres in the first round. Funny. I was hoping for that, too.
