Playoff matchups are getting set in the MLB.
In the AL the only race left unsettled is the AL Central where the Tigers are two games away from clinching. Minnesota has to win their remaining three games and hope the Tigers lose two of their next three to finish the season tied in which case Minnesota would move on due to their head-to-head season victory over Detroit. As a Yankee fan I would much rather see a Morneau-less Twins team than Verlander and Jackson. Whoever wins that division plays against the Yankees.
In the NL the playoff teams are set (Dodgers, Phillies, Cardinals, and Rockies) but the actual match-ups are going to come down to the wire. All four NL playoff teams are within two games of each other with three left to go so the match-ups could change substantially between now and Sunday. The Dodgers and Rockies play a three game series starting today which will go a long way to determining who is the Wild Card and who gets home field advantage.
Detroit at Yankees (92% probability) or Minnesota at Yankees (8% probability)
Red Sox at Angels
NL: (As it stands right now)
Cardinals at Dodgers
Rockies at Phillies
Looks like some real good match-ups and some good games. Cardinals at Dodgers, Red Sox at Angels, and Minnesota/Detroit at the Yankees are all games that I would want to watch. I hope they space these games out so I can catch a lot of them.
BTW. Go Yankees.
