Technically, the playoffs started yesterday with the Cardinals and Orioles winning the two wildcard play-in games. Those two games don’t really feel like the postseason though. Sure they counted, just ask the Braves and Rangers, but the whole one game, winner take all thing is weird. Anyway, the LDS round begins in earnest tonight, with two games on the slate. The Athletics and Tigers (Parker vs. Verlander) kick things off at 6:07pm ET, then the Reds and Giants (Cueto vs. Cain) will follow at 9:37pm ET. Both games will air on TBS.
Feel free to talk about those games or anything else (except politics) here this evening. There’s college football on somewhere, but really? Over playoff baseball? Not happening for me. You folks know what to do, so have at it.
