The bell tolls for San Diego
The San Diego Padres were mathematically eliminated from playoff contention Monday night after St. Louis beat Houston earlier in the evening.
Eleven teams have been mathematically eliminated. Three teams have clinched playoff spots, all in the NL.
[For those new to this, I’ve been marking when each team in MLB is mathematically eliminated with the same tagline and a picture of a player named Bell who played for the team. Except for the Twins, who have managed to never have a player named Bell on their team in 112 seasons.]
