Well, we're down to the wire in 10 match-ups, and everything will be resolved by next week's update. The Phillies, Marlins, Rockies and Indians have all punched their cards to the Sweet 16 thanks to the Pirates, Dodgers, Mets and White Sox putting up little fight. I guess that statement isn't quite true for the Dodgers, as they were faced with the buzz saw also known as Florida, but I'm a Padre fan so I'll let that comment stand.
Several of the final match-ups are still extremely close to call, so after the jump, I provided a breakdown of each teams remaining opponents for the first 32 games. Unfortunately, no head to head match-ups will occur to decide the winner, save for one game between the Brewers and the Cardinals.
Enough of my prattling, here is the bracket as it stands with the Magic Number and Game Lead to peruse...

Finally, I'll have a trade post up shortly about a nice package I received from Crinkly Wrappers that has put a sizable dent in my quest for 2011 Topps Series One. I surmise that based on his apparent generosity and humbleness, one of you readers will get a nice gift from me.
