Could a 4th place team in a division in the MLB still grab that final wildcard spot? ?

    Yes in 2020.  Teams that finish first and second in each division are headed to the playoffs.  The final two spots go to the teams with the best record in each league, regardless of their place within their division.  It's possible that a 4th place team in one division could have a better record than 3rd place teams in the other two divisions.  Not likely, but possible!

    Right now, the Brewers are the only 4th place team that have a playoff shot and they're under 50/50 to make it.

    It could, yes.

    Yes, in theory, this season it's possible, but it won't happen, there might be a sub .500 team that makes it to the playoffs thou, but that probably won't happen either, it will be close.
