FINAL MLB PLAYOFF BRACKETS NL (starts Wednesday) 8 Milwaukee at 1 Los Angeles 7 Cincinnati at 2 Atlanta 6 Miami at 3 Chicago 5 St. Louis at 4 San Diego AL (starts Tuesday) 8 Toronto at 1 Tampa Bay 7 Chicago at 2 Oakland 6 Houston at 3 Minnesota 5 New York at 4 Cleveland
As expected, general manager Billy Eppler will not return to the Los Angeles Angels, source tells ESPN. The question now for the Angels: Will Dave Dombrowski come to Anaheim to try to do what he did in Miami, Detroit and Boston? @Ken_Rosenthal first on the move with Eppler.
Of course, one could argue some of the higher-ranked teams in the American League don't necessarily want to win. If things hold and Cleveland is the No. 7 seed, it is absolutely preferable to be the No. 3 and face No. 6 Houston than the No. 2 and face Bieber/Carrasco/Plesac.
Pretty much everyone who needs to be winning today is losing or tied, aside from the Cardinals, who are ahead of Milwaukee, 4-0, and would clinch the No. 5 seed with a win. Yankees, Giants, White Sox, Indians, A's, Phillies and Brewers all down. Twins, Reds and Blue Jays tied.
Yankees-falling-to-No. 8-seed-update: New York is not doing its part to stay as the No. 5 seed. Yankees already trailing the Marlins, 3-0. For the Yankees to tumble to eighth, they have to lose and the Blue Jays need to win. Currently, Toronto is tied with Baltimore in the 3rd.
The biggest compliment you can give a beat writer is this: You constantly have to see what they have and you fear looking. That is just one reason George King III is a Hall of Fame baseball writer.
100%. George is the absolute gold standard for beat reporting. Nobody knows his team better. Nobody works his clubhouse better. Cool, smart, hysterical. A lot of us want to be George King when we grow up. Yankees fans who really want to know what's going on will miss him. https://t.co/Qti4acpwXr
“I don’t play for awards. I could care less about those.” This is the story of who Francisco Lindor does play for. This Sunday night, we bring you @Lindor12BC like you’ve never seen him before. https://t.co/DNFuRUplbj
I don’t know a whole lot, but I know this: They’ve been playing professional baseball for 150 years, and never has there been a day like this. Six teams in each league have no idea what they’re going to be doing in the postseason … and the postseason starts Tuesday. Pretty cool.
The AL isn't quite as crazy as the NL, but the fact that there are eight playoff spots and only the Nos. 1 and 6 seeds are set is sort of nuts. The White Sox can get 2, 3, 4 or 7 seeds. The Yankees could easily be the lowest seed. Much more there, too: https://t.co/6b19r2sM4i
Here’s a breakdown of what’s up in the NL: - In 37 of 44 scenarios, St. Louis is in - In 33 of 44 scenarios, Milwaukee is in - In 14 of 44 scenarios, San Francisco is in - In 4 of 44 scenarios, Philadelphia is in Story gets into far greater detail: https://t.co/6b19r2sM4i
