Major League Baseball has finally reached the playoffs. It will look and sound different, but teams are now playing for the chance at a World Series.

For fans, not all playoff teams quite look the same. According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, there is a clear difference between the teams that have a real chance at winning it all and those that aren’t expected to see the LDS.

There is one clear team that couldn’t have higher expectations. More than three-fourths of fans think the Los Angeles Dodgers are the team to beat in baseball entering the playoffs.

On the other end of the spectrum is the Chicago Cubs. Despite winning the NL Central, fans think the Cubs are the division winner most likely to lose in the Wild Card round.

For the Rangers specifically, fans are feeling pessimistic heading into the offseason. Only 28 percent of fans said they think the team is headed in the right direction.
