    Hopefully some discussion in this thread.

    Anyway, I'm no good at putting together an Opening Post containing images, and the likes.

    Lets just say, I'm excited about the playoffs this season.


    The two wild card games contain, possibly the 4 biggest teams in Baseball

    On Tuesday night (Wednesday morning if you want to be pedantic), we have the Yankees travelling all the way to Boston to take on the Red Sox (01:00 GMT)

    And then on Wednesday, we have the winners of 90 games, St. Louis Cardinals travel to LA, to take on the 106 game winners, the LA Dodgers (01:10 GMT)


    Both games could be epics.

    My predictions are that the Yankees and Dodgers both progress.


    Actually, my heart says that Dodgers progress, but I am a little frightened. There is too much of a narrative, in the fact that the Dodgers had the second best record in all of baseball, and might only get to play one game in the postseason this year.


    Anyway, after the two WC games, we have:

    In the AL:

    AL WC winner vs Tampa Bay

    Chicago vs Houston


    In the NL:

    NL WC Winner vs San Francisco

    Atlanta vs Milwaukee


    My predictions, as if anyone cares are as follows:

    Wild Card Series:

    Yankees 9 -2 Red Sox

    Cardinals 2 - 4 Dodgers


    ALDS:

    Yankees 1 - 3 Rays

    White Sox 1 - 3 Astros

    NLDS:

    Dodgers 3 - 1 Giants

    Braves 3 - 2 Brewers


    ALCS:

    Astros 4 - 2 Rays

    Braves 2 - 4 Dodgers


    World Series:

    Astros 1 - 4 Dodgers

    Will try to watch as much of the postseason as I can ,October baseball is always a must watch. As always I think it's very difficult to predict .I think the Yankees beat the red Sox tonight these are the type of games Gerrit Cole was signed for .The cardinals have a great chance of winning in L.A tomorrow night there in great form and the Dodgers have some injury issues and also just because it's a wild card game and there usually chaos.

    As for the rest of the playoffs who knows? You could make a case for almost everyone but I would love to see the giants win it all they had a great season when they wernt expected to do much . I would love to see some of the older guys like Posey and Crawford get another ring.

    I love October baseball too, but the time difference makes it so difficult.

    The further the Dodgers go, the worse my sleep gets

    Red Sox eliminate the Yanks. Decent sized upset and shows the fickle nature of one game playoffs. Card may well beat the Dodgers tonight. You just never know in one game.

    Whoop whoop. Got through the WC Game. That was my biggest fear.

    Bring on those pesky Giants

    Anyone see the Rays last night? Looked very strong against the Red Sox.

    Arozarena stole home after already hitting a massive home run

    Red Sox split with Astros in Huston

    Back to Fenway for 3

    Looks like the ALCS will be very tasty.

    God I love Kike Hernandez. He was a wonderful Dodger, and deserves all the love he's getting in Boston


    Braves up 1-0 against the Dodgers. Not too worried yet. Come back to me tomorrow morning.

    All the "experts" were expecting a simple series for LA, and that could still happen, but realistically, the Braves should have knocked us out last season, and they're going to be very hungry

    Yeah, now I'm worried

    Do or die for the Red sox tonight. Going into the playoffs I didn't think the bullpen was strong but pleasantly proven wrong but the last 2 outings the pitching has being only average.

    Amazing how one pitch called a ball rather than a strike could swing the momentum of the Astros Red Sox series.
