Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across MLB. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in White Sox fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

Given the insta-nature of our last poll (on Wednesday’s mega-slate of games), this more general poll got leapfrogged.

Major League Baseball has finally reached the playoffs. It will look and sound different, but teams are now playing for the chance at a World Series.

For fans, not all playoff teams quite look the same. According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, there is a clear difference between the teams that have a real chance at winning it all and those that aren’t expected to see the LDS.

There is one team that couldn’t have higher expectations: More than three-fourths of fans think the Los Angeles Dodgers are the team to beat in baseball entering the playoffs.

On the other end of the spectrum are the Chicago Cubs. Despite winning the NL Central, fans think the Cubs are the division winner most likely to lose in the Wild Card round.

For the White Sox specifically, fans are excited. 89% of fans that responded said they are confident in the direction of the team. On top of that, more than 50% of White Sox fans thought the team could realistically win the World Series this season.
