Earlier this year I noticed a new feature in ESPN's MLB standings. In the last few columns they started showing what appeared to be percentages showing the likelihood that the team would win their division, the wild card, or make the playoffs in general. Today I finally checked out what these Coolstandings mean.

And for what it's worth, back on July 5th Coolstandings had these five teams as the most likely to finish the season in the playoffs:

Chicago Cubs 82.6
Philadelphia Phillies 79.0
Tampa Bay Rays 77.8
Chicago White Sox 68.9
Boston Red Sox 67.6

I imagine many baseball fans have already read about Coolstandings, but if you haven't, then you might be interested in checking it out.
