Eight teams within six games of final wild-card spot

With 60 games to play in our 36th season, some of our teams that are ‘playing for next year’ might be surprised to learn they are just a handful of games out of a playoff spot.

Currently Superior and Bismarck are tied for the third and final playoff spot, both with 50-50 records. But six teams with losing records range from 4-6 games behind that final playoff spot.

Only fiveĀ teams in the league own winning records at the 100-game mark, with Chatfield, Savannah and Applegate leading their divisions.

Bushwood leads the wild-card race with a record that is better than two of the division leaders, and Springfield is a solid second with 56 wins.

The Isotopes are the team to watch in August, with a brutal schedule that includes all three of the division leaders: Home against Chatfield and Applegate, and on the road against division rival Savannah, which leads the Isotopes by two games.

  1. We shall see a bigger disparity between the haves and the have nots going forward (following the trade deadline where a surprising number of teams punted the season).

  2. The Isotopes respectfully withdraw from August and will have a September CM ready
