    Dodgers rule this division. Crazy that, absent a most unlikely fluke season by the Gnats last year, they would've swept a decade. Quite an accomplishment, no doubt.

    But hopefully they're not celebrating too hard. There are bigger fish to fry.

    Magic number for a first round bye: 6
    Magic number for HFA throughout: 15

    it was all downhill after this song imo but what a song
    kind of stole what the Babys were doing and then digressed but for a minute there
    much better if you don't have to look at the goofball players no question

    I like the graphics, but the number to clinch a bye is actually 4 now. St Louis lost on Thursday coupled with our win yesterday.

    Dodgers have 102 wins. The most the Cardinals can win is 101. Meaning, LA has clinched a first round bye!

    Next target: home field advantage throughout.

    and the sad thing is, there's so many "straights" wanting to be.
    That's all they talk about...

    Dodgers magic numbers to clinch National League West, playoff bye, and No. 1 seed
    by Eric Stephen | True Blue LA — 23 September 2022

    [​IMG]

    The Dodgers have been the best team in baseball for most of the 2022 season, and we’re tracking each one of their regular season goals, including a first-round bye, and home field advantage through the National League playoffs and potentially the World Series.

    Making the playoffs

    With a win on Monday, September 12, the Dodgers (97-43) secured a postseason berth, by virtue of clinching a better record than the Brewers (75-66). The Dodgers own the season tiebreaker over Milwaukee by winning four of seven games.

    NL West

    The division was tied as late as June 22, believe it or not, but you wouldn’t know it based on the current standings, thanks to the Dodgers having two of their best months in franchise history, back-to-back.

    Los Angeles (98-43) clinched their ninth NL West title in 10 years on Tuesday, September 13, holding a 20½-game lead over the Padres (78-64) with 21 Dodgers games remaining and 20 left for San Diego.

    The Dodgers already clinched the season series over the Padres. There are no more Game 163 regular season tiebreakers any more, so winning the season series would give the Dodgers the edge should the two teams somehow tie.

    September 13 was the Dodgers’ 141st game of a 162-game season, their earliest clinch by game since moving to Los Angeles.

    Bypassing the wild card round

    By winning on Monday, September 19, the Dodgers (102-44) ensured a better record than the Cardinals (87-61), NL Central leaders and owners of the third-best record among the three division leaders. That earned the Dodgers a bye into the National League Division Series.

    The division winners with the best two records in each league get the top two seeds, and an automatic berth in the LDS. This year, with the last game of the regular season on October 5 and the start of the NLDS on October 11, that means five days off to plan the rotation order you want, plus facing a wild card team that played at least two games, and possibly three, before heading your way.

    No. 1 overall seed in the National League

    The Mets are in a dogfight for the NL East with the Braves, with that division winner in line for the No. 2 seed. New York leads Atlanta at the moment.

    Dodgers 104-47 (.689) - - -
    Mets 96-56 (.632) 8½ GB
    Braves 93-58 (.616) 11 GB

    The Dodgers’ magic number to clinch home field advantage through the NLCS is 3. The Dodgers have the tiebreaker over Atlanta, by winning four of six games. The Mets have the tiebreaker over the Dodgers by winning four of seven games this season.

    Home field advantage in the World Series

    With 100 wins already under their belt, the Dodgers have already clinched home field advantage for any potential World Series matchups against every American League team except the Astros and Yankees. Here are the records of those three teams:

    Dodgers 104-47 (.689) - - -
    Astros 99-53 (.651) 5½ GB
    Yankees 92-58 (.613) 11½ GB

    The Dodgers’ magic number to clinch World Series home field advantage against Houston is 6. Over New York, the Dodgers’ magic number is 1.

    The Dodgers did not play the Astros nor Yankees during the regular season, so should the two teams remain tied, the first tiebreaker of head-to-head record cannot be used. The second tiebreaker, even for teams in different leagues, is their intradivisional record. Los Angeles has the advantage here, but that hasn’t yet been finalized.

    Dodgers 49-18 vs. NL West
    Astros 51-25 vs. AL West
    Yankees 41-26 vs. AL East

    Houston is done with playing their own division this season, while the Dodgers have nine of their final 12 games against the NL West.
