Grantland: Crowning the Most Exciting Team of the 2015 MLB Regular Season

The more a team's playoff odds fluctuate, the more on edge its followers are. Conversely, the earlier a team locks up a playoff spot or falls far out of the race by pegging its odds close to one extreme or the other, the more its games blend together and its fans look forward to the playoffs (or football). So let's use those playoff odds to determine which team had MLB's most exciting regular season in 2015.

What's at stake today

The Angels can't win a wild-card spot outright, but they can still force a tie for it. The Astros clinch a playoff spot with a win, but which one will it be? That depends on the Texas Rangers, who could really simplify things by just winning the division title on Sunday.

Still so much baseball left

The Astros still have a teeny bit of breathing room. They can afford to lose one more game, as long as the Angels lose tomorrow, too. The Halos, on the other hand, need the Astros to lose both weekend games in order to clinch the wild-card spot.
