Sorry, I didn't think to do this earlier when the first tie-less standings (probably back in late April), but here is your first update, just in time for Memorial Day Weekend. Right now, Ultimate Anyone? is slightly smaller than Literally Everyone!

Code:
    Playoff-Bound:

    AL East      - Yankees              NL East      - Phillies
    AL Central   - Twins                NL Central   - Cubs
    AL West      - Astros               NL West      - Dodgers
    AL Wild Card - Red Sox              NL Wild Card - Braves
    AL Wild Card - Rays                 NL Wild Card - Brewers

Not much changed in the way of the leaders (other than NL East), in the last month or so, but a few shifts in the middle of packs has changed the wild cards and standing points. I expect a lot more volatility as many teams are half-points apart in the standings (like the middle of the NL West, trailing far behind the division lead, but not far from wild-card spots), and the NL Central is close, with last place Cincy 4.5 games out of either the division leader or a wild card spot.
