I wish I could tell you something you didn't already know, but the Arizona Diamondbacks' postseason hopes have been all but dashed by the Los Angeles Dodgers' historic surge.

While the Diamondbacks have played mostly mediocre baseball all season, barely keeping their head above .500, with just 33 games to play, their chances at a postseason berth are getting increasingly slim.

In a quick survey of three sites which feature playoff projections, the Diamondbacks' highest percentage at the playoffs is set at 9.9%.

ESPN: 9.9% chance of making the playoffs

Baseball Prospectus: 3.1% chance of making the playoffs

FanGraphs: 82-80 win-loss record; 13 games back of Dodgers in NL West, 7 games back of Cincinnati Reds in NL Wild Card

One site, Baseball Prospectus, projects the Diamondbacks to finish below .500, at 80-82.

The Diamondbacks face the Philadelphia Phillies Saturday, carrying a 65-62 record into the contest and trailing the Dodgers by 11 games in the NL West and the Reds by 6.5 games in the race for the second NL Wild Card.
