How many teams make the playoffs in MLB?

Eight. Four teams make the playoffs in each league. There are three divisions in each league and the three teams that wind up in first place in their division make the playoffs. The fourth team to make the playoffs is the team that did not win their division but has the best overall record of all the teams that did not win their division. That team is called the "wildcard" team.

What win percentage does a baseball team need to make the playoffs?

As far as MLB is concerned, winning percentage doesn't really enter in to whether a team makes the playoffs or not. A team makes the playoffs by winning their division or being the team with the highest winning percentage of those other teams that did not win their division. There have been teams to make the playoffs with a record as 'poor' as 83-78, as did the 2006 St. Louis Cardinals who went on to win the World Series. There have been teams with records as good as 94-68 (1982 Baltimore Orioles) that did not make the playoffs. That goes to show that a team with a winning percentage of just over .500 can make the playoffs where a team with a winning percentage of .580 can miss the playoffs.


How do you qualify for the playoffs in MLB?

There are four teams from each league that make the playoffs. Each league is divided into three divisions. Each division winner gets an automatic bid to the playoffs.

The wildcard team is the team that has the best overall win loss record of those teams that did not win their division.


What is the difference between cliched the division and clinched the playoff?

In the NFL, when a team clinches the division, this means the team will finish with the best record in the division and will make the playoffs as a 1, 2, 3 or 4 seed( depending on the records of the other division winners). Clinching a playoff birth means that a team will make the playoffs but have not won the division yet (pending on their chances to win the division). If a team clinches a playoff berth but not division, they will get either the 5 or 6 seed in the playoffs.


What is the required win-lose record to get into the NFL playoffs?

There is no set win-loss record to make the playoffs. The record needed is the best win-loss record that wins your team their division, or one of the two best records for wild car playoff spots. Teams with 11-5 records have missed the playoffs while in 2010 the Seahawks became the first team with a losing record (7-9) to win their division and then win a playoff game.


Can NFL team have a losing record and make the playoff?

Yes. Six teams from each conference make the playoffs, the four division winners and the two teams with the best won/loss record that did not win their division. If a division winner's record is less than .500 they still make the playoffs. If the record of one of the two teams with the best record that did not win their division is less than .500, they still make the playoffs. Only three teams with losing records have ever made the NFL playoffs: The Browns and Lions both entered the 1982 playoffs with 4-5 records. (The season was shortened by a players' strike.) In 2010 the Seattle Seahawks won the NFC West with a 7-9 record, becoming the first NFL team to make the playoffs with a losing record in a full season.


Can a team that is not seeded be in the playoff?

In the playoffs, a 'seed' is a ranking. This ranking is usually done by whether a team wins its division or, if they don't win their division, by a team's regular season win/loss record. A team that does not make the playoffs is not seeded ... they don't play anymore so there is no need to 'seed' them.
