  • The playoff matches as of now

    I'm not sure about the format. can teams now play against teams in their own division?

    Is that this correct:

    1st vs 4th/5th
    2nd vs 3rd

    or does the division play a role (for example if 1st, 4th, 5th are all in one division)?

    Under the new CBA, teams can play others in their division.

      Prior to today's games, this is how I think it would look...

      AL

      Baltimore vs Oakland (1-game)

      Texas vs Balt/Oak Winner (5-game)
      New York vs Chicago (5-game)

      NL

      Atlanta vs St. Louis (1-game)

      Washington vs Atl/StL Winner (5-game)
      Cincinnati vs San Francicso (5-game)

      The closest thing to change could be Washington and Cincinnati swapping opponents since they're 1/2 game apart of having best NL record. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

        I believe you're correct, but there are several teams that still have a shot in the Wild Card races.

          the NLDS are locked up now as the nats secured the first place in the NL:

          Nats vs Cards/braves

          Giants vs Reds

          the AL will be determined today.

            looks like the rangers are going to win (even though they lost the west title) as they get to host the one-game W/C playoff

            for now it looks like it is against the birds
            and the rangers had a better head to head record against the orioles
            3-1 at baltimore
            2-1 at home

              I'm glad the Orioles ended the season with a loss. If we absolutely must play this silly Wild Card game, it might as well be one that would've been played anyway, as the Rangers and Orioles would've had to go to a Game 163 to determine the Wild Card winner under the old system.

                This looks like how things should kick off. Some teams haven't named their starters yet for Game 1 of the Div Series and I haven't heard who Baltimore's going with, but Suanders would be on regular rest.

                Friday (10/5)

                St. Louis (Lohse) @ Atlanta (Medlen)
                Baltimore (Saunders?) @ Texas (Darvish)

                Beginning Saturday (10/6)

                Cincinnati (Cueto) @ San Francisco (Cain)
                Washington (Zimmerman/Gonzalez?) @ St. Louis/Atlanta winner
                Oakland (Parker/Milone?) @ Detroit (Verlander)
                N.Y. Yankees (Sabathia?) @ Baltimore/Texas winner
