  As we head into the final two weekends of the regular season it looks like quite the horse race for a couple of slots.  Interestingly enough, the Launch are the most likely to be locked into their slot, assuming they take care of business in Boston on Saturday.  After last night's gutted out win by Ohio in Denver the two teams are tied for the top spot and barring any really ridiculous hiccups and permutations they will occupy the 1st and 2nd seeds and will host home playoff games in the semifinals, with the Launch likely to travel to one of them. Here are the standings as of today and the games remaining:   MLL Standings Team   W-L To Go Denver 8-4 2 Ohio 8-4 2 Florida 7-6 1 Rochester
