Re: 2018 MLB Playoffs, Wild Card Edition

I think it would be fun for the Rockies and A's to win, just to mix it up in the playoffs. I voted for them, but I don't think it will actually happen. I think the Rockies will be a little drained from the last couple days and the travel, and the Yankees have too much power.

If Colorado win it's on too Milwaukee.

They would have played in three cities in 4 days.

It would be 4 in 5. Since they played on Sunday in Colorado. Monday in LA. Tuesday in Chicago. And (hopefully) Thursday in Milwaukee.

I'll go with the Cubs and Yanks winning the wild cards. I don't have much faith in the Rockies, and no one has an idea whether the A's will show up.

Liam Hendriks (who?) and Luis Severino are the official starters for the AL WC.

Man, nobody posting at all during the game tonight. This has been a fun pitcher's duel. BTW, the ESPN2 Statcast broadcast is pretty great if you're into advanced sabermetrics.

Re: 2018 MLB Playoffs, Wild Card Edition

I've been glued to the game for the last several innings. Though I'm rooting hard for the Rockies, the Cubs executed really well to tie it up. Extra innings in October is always fun!

I’ve watched nearly the whole thing but I don’t want to jinx it either way.

I've caught innings here and there. Getting late, even on the West Coast.

Rockies break through.

No matter what, the Brewers are laughing their asses off right now.

Re: 2018 MLB Playoffs, Wild Card Edition

They should be laughing ... the Cubs should have been the Division champs and the Brewers should be playing this game.

The “tiebreaker” game is something that should have been eliminated as MLB kept adding rounds to the postseason.
