It's the last Monday of the MLB season, and the AL playoff picture is beginning to take shape.
However, while three teams secured their berths into the postseason on Sunday, two spots remain, with divisional and wild card spots still up for grabs.
The Tigers are one small step from winning the AL Central and becoming a team no one wants to face in a short series. The Yankees and Orioles look primed to fight to Game 162 for the AL East crown, and the Rangers and Athletics will have plenty of fans staying up late for their season-ending series.
