Lets take a look at the National League going into week 18.

National   League Division
W L GB WC
Florida 29 22 #1
Washington 28 23 1 #2
St Louis 27 24 2 #3
Team   vs  FL STL WSH FL/STL/WSH  NL
WSH 2-4 2-1  4-5 13-8
FL 2-4 4-2  6-6 14-7
STL 4-2 1-2  5-4 12-9

Florida controls its own destiny for home field advantage.  First off Florida MUST win two games (or Win 1 and St Louis lose 1) in order to eliminate St Louis from a division title.  Once that occurs, Florida controls the tie breaker advantage over Washington (4-2).

If Florida wins 3 games vs Atlanta week 18:

…and Washington wins series vs St Louis.  Florida is the #1 seed.  STL @ WSH round 1.

…and St Louis wins 3 vs Washington.  Florida is the #1 seed. WSH @ STL round 1.

…and St Louis wins 2 vs Washington.  Florida is the #1 seed.  WSH @ STL round 1. WSH & STL would be 3-3 head-to-head and each would be 14-10 vs NL.  The next tiebreaker is division record in 2nd half of season.  STL would be 7-5 & WSH 5-7.

If Florida wins 2 games vs Atlanta week 18:

…and Washington wins 3 vs St Louis.  Florida is #1 seed (4-2 vs WSH).  STL @ WSH round 1.

…and Washington wins 2 vs St Louis.  Florida is #1 seed.  STL @ WSH round 1.

…and St Louis wins 3 vs Washington.  Florida is #1 seed.  WSH @ STL round 1.

…and St Louis wins 2 vs Washington.  Florida is #1 seed.  WSH @ STL round 1.

If Florida wins 1 game vs Atlanta week 18:

…and Washington wins 3 vs St Louis.  Washington is the NL #1 seed. STL @ FL round 1.

…and Washington wins 2 vs St Louis.   Florida is the NL #1 seed (4-2 over WSH).  STL @ WSH round 1.

…and St Louis wins 3 vs  Washington.  St Louis is the NL #1 seed (4-2 over FL). WSH @ FL round 1.

…and St Louis wins 2 vs Washington.  Florida is the NL #1 seed.  WSH @ STL round 1.  (STL & WSH would both be 3-3 & 14-10 vs NL.  The next tiebreaker is division record in the last 9 weeks of the season.  STL would be 8-4 & WSH would be 5-7)

If Florida wins 0 games vs Atlanta week 18:

…and Washington wins 3 vs St Louis.  Washington is the #1 seed.  STL @ FL round 1.

…and Washington wins 2 vs St Louis.  Washington is the #1 seed. STL @ FL round 1.

…and St Louis wins 3 vs Washington.  St Louis is the #1 seed.  WSH @ FL round 1.

…and St Louis wins 2 vs Washington.  All teams would be 29-25.  St Louis would be #1 seed (7-5 vs FL/WSH).  WSH (5-7) @ FL (6-6) round 1.
