The Indians (96.1 %) probability of making the Playoffs is the best in the American League, just above the Texas Rangers (94.8 %).

Adjusted Playoff Percentage cuts it down to 93.9 %, which is still the highest in the American League. Aside from the Tribe and Rangers, no team in the American League has a higher percentage than 61.

Baseball Prospectus’ National League projections have the Cubs with a slightly better chance of making the Playoffs (99.7 %) but the Tribe actually has a higher chance of winning the World Series, as the Indians are at 19.3 %, while Chicago is at 18.9 %.

If you’re asking me how they come to these conclusions, I could not tell you and by tomorrow the percentages could change a hair or two one way or the other.

But for now, enjoy it Tribe fans.

The stat geeks are on board with the Tribe. As everyone should be.
