The All-Star break has arrived and that means MLB bettors, fans and teams get their first real opportunity to take a deep breath.
Entering the break, five of the six division leaders are ahead by at least 5.5 games. The one division that is set up for chaos is the National League Central. All five teams in that division are still alive.
The Dodgers currently hold the largest division lead, with a 13.5-game gap between them and second-place Arizona Diamondbacks. I think it is probably safe to say the Dodgers have the West locked up.
What about the rest of the league, though? Are there any live longshots worth thinking about?
