The American League playoff picture is 100-percent official Nolan Ryan Jersey , as all five teams are in and know their respective seedings. However,none of the National League seedings are confirmed with just one game to go.We do know that the Atlanta Braves are the NL East champions and will either be the No. 2 or No. 3 seed.Otherwise, it's chaos.You can check out both playoff pictures below as teams get ready for Game No. 162 on Sunday. American League Playoff Picture (Official)1. Boston Red Sox (107-54, AL East champion)2. Houston Astros (103-58, AL West champion)3. Cleveland Indians (90-71, AL Central champion)4. New York Yankees (100-61, AL first Wild Card)5. Oakland Athletics (97-64, AL second Wild Card)The Houston Astros and Cleveland Indians will play each other in the American League Division Series. The New York Yankees and Oakland Athletics face off in the Wild Card Game on Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET, with the winner taking on the Boston Red Sox in the ALDS. National League (Through Saturday)1. Chicago Cubs (94-67, NL Central champion)2. Colorado Rockies (90-71, NL West champion)3. Atlanta Braves (90-71, NL East champion)4. Milwaukee Brewers (94-67 , NL first Wild Card)5. Los Angeles Dodgers (90-71, NL second Wild Card)Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee BrewersThe Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers are tied for the NL Central lead with one game to go. The Cubs host the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday, with Chicago southpaw Mike Montgomery facing Redbirds ace Jack Flaherty. The Milwaukee Brewers host the Detroit Tigers: Lefty Gio Gonzalez goes for the Brew Crew, while right-hander Spencer Turnbull goes for Detroit.Here's what we do know heading into Sunday: The NL Central division winner will get the No. 1 seed, and the runner-up will host the NL Wild Card Game on Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET.However, we may not know the identities of the first- and second-place teams until Monday: If the Cubs and Brewers have the same Sunday result (whether it's two wins or two losses is irrelevant), they'll take part in a one-game playoff at Wrigley Field, per David Adler of The Cubs would get that hosting honor by virtue of winning the season series 11-8 over Milwaukee.Of course, the tiebreaker can be avoided if the Cubs and Brewers have different results Sunday. Colorado Rockies, Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta BravesThe Colorado Rockies and Los Angeles Dodgers are tied for the NL West lead with one game to go. The Rockies host the Washington Nationals on Sunday, with left-hander Tyler Anderson taking the mound for the Rockies and right-hander Erick Fedde going for the Nats.The Rockies catch a massive break by avoiding Cy Young candidate and MLB strikeout king Max Scherzer, who could have gone Sunday on regular rest but will call it a season.The Dodgers send out right-hander Walker Buehler against the host San Francisco Giants and left-hander Andrew Suarez.The NL West race is a bit more confusing than the NL Central one. We do know that the eventual division winner will face the Atlanta Braves in the NLDS Reggie Jackson Jersey , but the seeding is to be determined (see below). The loser will travel to face the NL Central runner-up in the NL Wild Card Game on Tuesday.There will be a one-game tiebreaker on Monday if both NL West teams win (or lose tomorrow). The Dodgers will host that matchup thanks to their 12-7 season-series win.If there is no tie (that would mean a Rockies win and Dodgers loss Sunday or vice versa), then the winning side will be the NL West champion and the No. 2 seed.The only way Atlanta can get the No. 2 seed is if they beat the Philadelphia Phillies (right-hander Kevin Gausman goes for the Braves against Phils left-hander Ranger Suarez) and the Rockies and Dodgers both lose. That would leave the Braves as the uncontested No. 2 seed alone at 91-71.The Braves lost theseason-series tiebreakerto the Rockies and Dodgers, so they'd be lower in the NL bracket if there is a tie. BOSTON (AP) — The last time Dave Dombrowski built a World Series champion, he had to start dismantling it before the celebratory champagne had a chance to dry.He’s hoping to defend the title for real next year.“It is significantly different than the last time,” he said on Thursday, four days after the Red Sox won their fourth title in 15 years and Dombrowski earned a ring to go with the one he won with the binge-and-purge Florida Marlins of the late 1990s.“This will be the first time in my career that we will be going to spring training as the defending champions,” said Dombrowski, who avoided the term after selling off the stars that won it all in Miami in 1997. “Sometimes when guys become free agents they receive offers they can’t refuse. But we’d like to keep this team together.”After winning the Series in five games on Sunday night, flying back to Boston on Monday and then holding their increasingly routine duck boat parade through the city on Wednesday, the Red Sox are the last team in the majors to start the offseason and think about the 2019 roster.Already, the team has exercised its option on Chris Sale, and David Price decided not to opt out of his deal. Eduardo Nunez also exercised his option to return , forgoing free agency.But key parts of the team that won a franchise-record 108 games and then eliminated the Yankees, Astros and Dodgers in the playoffs can become free agents. Among them: closer Craig Kimbrel, World Series MVP Steve Pearce, and starting pitchers turned relief stars Nathan Eovaldi and Joe Kelly.Also on the list are infielders Ian Kinsler and Brandon Phillips, and pitcher Drew Pomeranz.Manager Alex Cora also said he would like to give it another try with the same players, but he knows that’s not possible. The last team to repeat as World Series champions was the New York Yankees from 1998-2000, and the Red Sox haven’t done it since 1915-16, which is also the last time they won back-to-back AL pennants.“Wherever the offseason takes us, we’re going to be fine,” Cora said. “I can’t wait for the offseason to be over, get to February and start practicing what we are going to do next year. Obviously, that’s the goal: to repeat.”But first Yunel Escobar Jersey , there are free agents to sign or re-sign, and some of the returning players need to bounce back from injuries.Dombrowski said Sale does not need surgery for the left shoulder inflammation that forced the team to scratch him from two postseason starts. “We anticipate him to come to spring training and be 100 percent,” said Dombrowski, the team’s president of baseball operations.Also hoping to take advantage of the offseason is second baseman Dustin Pedroia, who missed almost the entire season — and all of the playoffs — with a knee injury. The 2008 AL MVP came off the disabled list in May and lasted just three games before heading back to the DL.Pedroia was reinstated from the 60-day disabled list on Thursday. Cora said he promised Pedroia, a teammate from the 2007 championship team and the longest-tenured player on the roster, that if he’s ready he can bat leadoff on opening day.“That’s the goal,” Cora said.Also Thursday, the Red Sox reinstated infielder Marco Hernandez and right-handers Austin Maddox and Carson Smith from the 60-day DL; Smith refused an outright assignment to the minors and elected to become a free agent.Infielder Tony Renda and right-hander Justin Haley were also sent outright to the minors.
