With less than a month remaining in the 2012 season, it’s shaping up to be yet another exciting playoff race. While there are several divisions that remain up for grabs, the hunt for the final Wild Card spots in each league offers just as much intrigue.

In the American League, there are essentially five teams, taking into account one of the New York Yankees, Baltimore Orioles and Tampa Bay Rays will win the American League East, vying for two Wild Card playoff spots. Things are even crazier in the National League, as there are five clubs within five games of the current holder of the second Wild Card spot, the St. Louis Cardinals.

As was the case last year, we’ve had several clubs climb back into contention following ugly early-season play. We’ve also witnessed clubs struggle in a big way down the stretch.

Two teams that have made their way back into the playoff picture are the Philadelphia Phillies and Milwaukee Brewers. Each club was counted out as recently as a few weeks ago, but entered today four games back of the Cardinals.

Do you expect either of these clubs to make the 2012 postseason?
