04:01 PM ET 09.19 | Barring a complete collapse, it's appearing more and more likely that three teams from the National League Central division (St. Louis Cardinals, Cincinnati Reds and Pittsburgh Pirates) will make the postseason. The division winner will sit comfortably awaiting their matchup in the divisional round while the other two teams will play in a winner-take-all game, with the winner of that moving on to the Divisional Round while the loser is done for the season. Whatever fate the Pittsburgh Pirates have, be it the Central Division champions or a Wild Card team, Francisco Liriano is likely to start their postseason opener.
