Last night I was premature with this post but tonight is correct. All the NL East teams are within three games. Throw a blanket over the division. 
Marlins will sink out of it fast.  Braves seem a lock for one of the top 2 spots.   I like us against the Phillies and Mets even without Strasburg for the second spot.

The AL central has a six  game spread between first and last.  All the other divisions 9 or 10 games already.  Right now the two NL wild cards would be SD and AZ.

With 2 division leader spots, I doubt we have to worry about the wild card.  The NL West must be beating up on the AL West early.  There is no way they will have 4 teams all above .500 with all the games being against each other.

Can a 4th place team in a division qualify as a WC, or is the WC the two best 3d place finishers?

The final two seeds (Nos. 7-8) will go to the two teams with the next best records, regardless of division and division standing. Because the first- and second-place teams in each division automatically advance to October, the 7 and 8 seeds are the actual “Wild Card teams.”
