Pilots Clinch LF Wildcard

The Less Filling playoff picture clarified itself dramatically when the Seattle Pilots closed out their season strong, sweeping both Georgia and Grundy County.

The 91-71 Pilots will represent the Less Filling as the Wildcard team in the 2007 NASBL Playoffs.

What remains to be seen is whether their 1st round opponent will be the Vermont Fighting Sioux, or the Dallas Fort Worth Spurs. Both division winners (presumptively in the case of the Sioux, whose magic number is still technically at 1, with the New York Knights dangling by the proverbial thread) are within percentage points of one another.

Over in the TG, the East is still technically wide open, with Honolulu yet to eliminate either Springfield or Lake Champlain from either the division title or Wildcard hopes. Nevertheless, the Hawaiians are in the driver's seat for the division crown, and Springfield holds all the cards in the WC chase.

In the TG South, Outlaw now holds a 1/2 game edge over Texas, with New Jersey 4 games back.
