I really, really don't think the Brewers have a 46% chance for the postseason. I'd say 20% chance is much more realistic.
Reds seem about right to me.
The PECOTA-adjusted version shows the Cards at %41, the Astro's at %36, the Reds at %25, the Pirates at %.44951, and the Brewres at %50. Seems someone loves the Brewers and loathes the Pirates.
