The year of PLayoff and Wild Card berths

Seems the hated Cubbies and Brewers have a playoff game tomorrow at Wrigley to decide who wins the division.  If that is not enough the Dodgers and Rockies tee off tomorrow to decide the NL West Champ.  Game at Dodger Stadium.
  

It's A Great Day for Bucco Baseball

Believe it or Not!  In 1959 the Pirates almost traded Dick Groat for Roger Maris.

Those extra games to determine Central and West Division winners will effect how the teams set up their starting pitching for either the Wild Card Game or Division Series. The Braves have a few days to lineup their starting pitching. I think that gives the Braves a little advantage entering the postseason.

Apparently they are not playoff games.  They are games 163.  All stats count to the regular season.  That could be significant for the MVP race.  Yelich has a chance to win the Triple Crown with a good day today.

Losers play each other in the WCG, I believe. So, whoever wins the WCG will have used their top two starters, presumably.

Add travel for the play in game and then the WC game and that may tire a team out, too.  Probably a bigger deal for LA and CO because I think Chicago or Mil would host the WC game.

My dislike of Joe Maddon was the tiebreaker for me.

I fully agree.  And now I  will go change pitchers to keep up with the genius.

Smiley You can watch a replay of yesterday's game on the network station (Root? AT&T something?). The good news is they win!

Brewers beat cubs.  Best of a bad set of choices.

+1 more.

Really dislike Mr. Plantar Fasciitis. And he seemed to be falling all over himself in the 8th.

Another Cubs loss, an A's win over the Yankees and I can enjoy almost every postseason game this year.
