PLAYOFF SHIFTS WEEK 9
Stephen Oh of AccuScore.com on the NL East
The Atlanta Braves were 5-2 to continue their hot play, but they still only have a 24 percent chance of making the playoffs. They hold a 2 game lead on Philadelphia after they swept Philly to start the week. Even though the Phillies bats went silent for a while AccuScore still believes they are the team to beat in the NL East. Florida went just 3-4 this week but picked up +3.7 percent in the playoff race. This can be attributed to the call-up of Michael Stanton whose bat could help Florida win 2 to 4 more games this year than they would have without him.
