My best friend, a math instructor at Drexel University, seized upon this, and grabbed his scientific calculator. He wanted to figure out the odds of such a thing happening.

Even assuming equal talent, and no weird variables such as injuries, collapses, and the like, his calculator--which is able to record sums up to the 99th power--replied with a "MAX ERROR" message ...

That would require BOTH the Mets and Phillies to sweep their weekend series, since the minimum wins for an NL West tie would be 90.

In that case, I imagine each division would have their one game playoff
and the two losing teams would face each other on Tuesday for the wild card.

More likely is a tie between the Phils, Mets and one or two NL West 2nd place teams, where head to head record would be used as tiebreaker for the NL East champ and the other team would enter into the wildcard tournament with the west team(s).

In the AL, there definitely is NO playoff if teams tie. I think there might be different rules between the leagues.
