The Cubs close the regular season with a three-game series against the Cardinals.The Brewers would need to pick up two full games in the standingsto win the division outright. If they pick up one game during the final series, the two teams would be tied and they would meet in a one-game tiebreaker at Wrigley Field.If that happens, that game would not be considered a playoff game.

Their magic number is two to ensure they will play postseason baseball. The Dodgers have a magic number of three.The Cubs have a magic number of three to clinch the division title.If the Rockies, Dodgers and Cardinals all have the same record at the conclusion of Sunday's action, the Rockies and Dodgers would play for the division title, while the loser would play the Cardinals Tuesday for a wild-card berth.The NL Wild Card game is scheduled for Tuesday, but in the event of the three-team tie mentioned above, it would be played Wednesday.The Atlanta Braves (89-70) have clinched the NL East title, and they cannot earn the National League's No. 1 seed since their maximum win total is 92, while the Cubs already have 93 victories.The Rockies cannot win more than 92 games, so that means the Cubs or Brewers will end up with the top seed.PredictionsThe Brewers have won four games in a row and seven of 10, and they have an excellent chance of sweeping the Tigers in the final series.It will be difficult for the Cubs to do the same to the Cardinals. While St. Louis cannot be happy after being swept at home by Milwaukee this week, the Cards should be able to win at least one game or possibly two against the Cubs.The Brewers and Cubs will end up in a one-game playoff for the NL Central title Andre Dawson Jersey , and the home team would certainly have the best chance to win that game.In the NL West, the Dodgers will have a difficult time with the Giants, and nothing would make San Francisco and its fans happier than knocking the Dodgers out of the playoffs. San Francisco wins two of three in the final series.If that happens, the Rockies would need just one win against the Nationals to clinch the division title. We see them winning at least two and earning their first division flag.Here's how we see the National League playing out:Atlanta Braves earn the No. 3 seed as the NL East championsChicago Cubs defeat the Milwaukee Brewers in one-game playoff and earn No. 1 seed as NL Central championsBrewers earn No. 1 wild-card spotColorado Rockies earn the No. 2 seed as the NL West champions.Los Angeles earn the No. 2 wild-card spot. Many of the big names have already been dealt prior to the July 31 trade deadline (4 p.m. ET), but there are several additional moves that have a chance to be made.The Minnesota Twins came into the 2018 season with the idea that they were good enough to contend with the Cleveland Indians in the AL Central. It hasn't worked out that way, as the Twins are nine games behind the Tribe after losing three of four games to the Boston Red Sox.They are even further behind in the wild-card race, as they trail the Seattle Mariners for the No. 2 spot by 13.5 games.As a result, the Twins are in a sell mode as the deadline approaches, and second baseman Brian Dozier could be among their most valuable commodities to move. The San Francisco Giants and Cleveland Indians are two of the teams that are most interested in Dozier, according to Twins beat writer Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.Dozier is not having the kind of explosive year with the bat that he did in either of the last two years, but he still represents something of a power bat at a middle-infield position. Dozier has a .224/.306/.404 slash line with 16 home runs and 52 runs batted in. Dozier belted 42 homers and knocked in 99 runs in 2016, and he hit 34 homers and 93 RBI last year.Dozier was especially hot in the second half of the season in each of the last two years.While the Indians are on their way to winning the AL Central and have their sights set on competing with the Houston Astros, Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees in the postseason, the Giants are in fourth place in the NL West.The Giants have a 53-54 record and have dropped seven of their last 10 games Ron Santo Jersey , and they are 6.5 games behind the first-place Los Angeles Dodgers.The Cincinnati Reds picked up pitcher Matt Harvey off the scrapheap after the New York Mets parted company with him early in the season.While Harvey appeared to have lost most of his velocity and was pitching poorly at the time of his departure from Citi Field, he has bounced back nicely since joining the Reds.Harvey has a 5-4 record in his 14 starts with Cincinnati, and he has a 4.44 earned-run averaged with a 1.192 WHIP. That's not a superstar level, but it is fairly competent.That's good enough to interest the Milwaukee Brewers, who have a strong need to upgrade their starting pitching. MLB network insider Jon Morosi tweeted that talks between the Brewers and the Reds are ongoing about sending Harvey to Milwaukee.Andy Martino martinonycMets having many, many trade discussions about Zack Wheeler, but the tone seems to have shifted since Wednesday. Heres why:gcFXEBk5c3One other potential move among pitchers involves Zack Wheeler of the New York Mets, who has won his last three starts and has pitched with increased efficiency.Wheeler has pitched 7.2, 7.0 and 6.0 innings(per Baseball-Reference) in those three starts, and he has allowed six earned runs in those three starts. Wheeler is 5-6 with a 4.11 ERA and 116 strikeouts in 120.1 innings pitched.The Philadelphia Phillies, Atlanta Braves, Brewers and Yankees are among the teams that have shown the most interest in Wheeler, according to MLB insider Jon Heyman of Fancred.It seems likely that the Mets might be most interested in dealing with the Brewerssince the Phillies and Braves are division rivals and sending him across town to the Yankees could be dangerous.The Mets may end up keeping Wheeler unless any of the potential trade partners improve their offers.
