The MLB Playoffs are starting to fill up now. After the Los Angeles Dodgers claimed a spot on Wednesday, two more teams did so on Thursday night in the form of the Chicago White Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays. The White Sox’ berth is particularly notable, as it marks their first playoff appearance since 2008.
Somehow, despite being a team for over 100 years, it’s going to be just their tenth-ever showing in the postseason. The Rays, meanwhile, clinched their sixth overall franchise playoff spot and their second in a row as they become a regular contender. Neither have sealed their respective divisions as of yet, and we are a long way from knowing exactly who they will be facing, but the picture is getting a little more clear as we approach October.
