1977 Divergent League Baseball Update – Sept 17th, 1977

1977 AL games back sept 17.png

Hokey smokes, Bullwinkle, we’re down to the last 2 weeks of the regular season and the NL and AL central are still up for grabs. The Phillies, Dodgers, Yankees, White Sox and Royals have all clinched postseason appearances. Unfortunately the Mariners, Giants, and Blue Jays are out of contention.

In the AL Central, the White Sox and the Royals are separated by just 3.5 games while facing each other 3 times in their final 9 games.

In the NL Central the Pirates have a strong lead but Cubs and Reds are both just barely still in the hunt for the division, while leading the Wild Card. The Cubs face the Pirates 3 times before it’s all over, and the Reds have 4 games against the Bucs.

It’s down to the wire, folks! With Divergent League you pay for the whole seat, but you only need the edge. Stay with us as we end the regular season this weekend and move into the playoffs. You can catch all of the action on extrafuture.com/tv
