Top 10 MLB Teams that are Most Likely to Make the Playoffs in 2018

Randomator
The Astros are the current defending World Series champions. As the 2018 season kicks off here are the teams I think have the best shot at the playoffs and potentially win the whole thing. Keep in mind that this list was made in April so expect this to be inaccurate by October
The voting period for this list has ended.

The Top Ten

1 Boston Red Sox Boston Red Sox The Boston Red Sox are an American professional baseball team based in Boston, Massachusetts, that competes in Major League Baseball.

It's amazing how the Red Sox and Yankees reload to face each other every year, it's the most intense rivalry I've ever seen. I can't wait for October, and a possible series between these 2 - Ned964

Funny how I had the word series champs at #1 all along...

Also dear football gods I pray that the Patriots do not make the Super Bowl or at the very least they lose the Super Bowl again amen. - Randomator

They just clinched and there my team

2 New York Yankees New York Yankees The New York Yankees are an American professional baseball team based in the Bronx, New York City, New York, that competes in Major League Baseball.

Loaded. As good as I've seen them in many years, on paper anyways. The dog days of summer are upon us, time to sort out the contenders over the next 3 months. I expect the Evil Empire will be a strong player at the trade deadline as well. The rich get richer. The Astros showed us last year you can still win it all with a largely internally built club, but I expext the Bombers or Red Sox will be quite formidible this time around - Ned964

Knowing that the Yankees have been relatively quiet the past few years in the playoffs it only means that they are closer to striking again and being back on top of the baseball world - Randomator

They hit the most home runs in a single season. Lookout for the evil empire - Randomator

Their offense and bullpen are legit but are a Luis Severino injury away from being the second wildcard at worst. - Satire

What can I say Yankees fans. Y’all wanted Boston and you got them alright - Randomator

3 Houston Astros Houston Astros The Houston Astros are an American professional baseball team based in Houston, Texas. They won the World Series in 2017.

They will not fall off, we shouldn't expect any less from the reigning champions. - Satire

4 Chicago Cubs Chicago Cubs The Chicago Cubs are an American professional baseball team based in Chicago, Illinois. The Cubs compete in Major League Baseball as a member club of the National League Central division.

Yikes they lost the division to the Brewers and then lost the wild card game to the Rockies a few days later. That’s gotta hurt - Randomator

5 Arizona Diamondbacks Arizona Diamondbacks
6 Los Angeles Dodgers Los Angeles Dodgers The Los Angeles Dodgers are an American professional baseball team based in Los Angeles, California. The Dodgers compete in Major League Baseball as a member club of the National League West division.

This close - Ned964

7 Cleveland Indians Cleveland Indians

Sick pitching staff throughout. - Ned964

8 Atlanta Braves Atlanta Braves

Atlanta has been surprisingly solid so far. - Randomator

9 Seattle Mariners Seattle Mariners The Seattle Mariners are an American professional baseball team based in Seattle, Washington. Enfranchised in 1977, the Mariners are a member of the West division of the American League in Major League Baseball.
10 Toronto Blue Jays Toronto Blue Jays The Toronto Blue Jays are a Canadian professional baseball team based in Toronto, Ontario. The Blue Jays are a member of the East division of the American League in Major League Baseball, and play their home games at Rogers Centre.

They keep loading up to compete with the big 2, but something big always misfires. It would be nice to see them get back to the playoffs - Ned964

They should just call up future HOFer Vlad Jr. and focus on a quick and hopefully efficient rebuild. - Satire

Their window closed for the time being. Now they’re a bunch of old inconsistent guys - Randomator

The Contenders

11 Washington Nationals Washington Nationals The Washington Nationals are a professional baseball team based in Washington, D.C. The Nationals compete in Major League Baseball as a member club of the National League East division.

Crazy offensive numbers, solid to spectacular starters. A bit iffy middle and late relief. They are very close - Ned964

12 Colorado Rockies Colorado Rockies
13 Philadelphia Phillies Philadelphia Phillies

Boy, have they rebounded quickly. Great baseball organization - Ned964

14 Milwaukee Brewers Milwaukee Brewers

Go Brewers! Just took a 2-1 lead in game 163 at Cubs and are threatening for more... - Ned964

They’ve just won the NL. I don’t know how the baseball playoff system works, but I hope they have a good run. - PackFan2005

15 Oakland A's Oakland A's

Since mid June they’ve picked up momentum going 40-13 since and now sit with the Astros atop the AL West - Randomator

16 Los Angeles Angels Los Angeles Angels

Lmao no despite Trout setting the pace for the best modern season ever his backing behind Simmons and Upton is a bunch of old men and AAA depth like Jabari Blash

i can't even pretend to feel sorry for these guys, even with the albatross of a contract with Pujols - Satire

17 New York Mets New York Mets The New York Mets are an American professional baseball team based in New York City. They play in Flushing, in the borough of Queens.

What the heck? Why did I put the Mets here? This team is nowhere near being a playoff contender - Randomator

Oh my lord you think the Mets are going to make the playoffs they can't even tie their shoes without going on the 10-day DL with another elbow injury. - Satire

Lol yeah I made a huge mistake adding them. This team is nowhere near playoff contention. - Randomator
