PLAYOFFS: Who's Going??

It's been an exciting weekend as it was determined who will play in this year's MLB playoffs.  First of all, for those of you who don't know, the playoffs are a series of games used to determine who will play against each other in the World Series.  Winning the World Series is the ultimate title for a baseball game, much like winning the Super Bowl.  Three teams from the National League and three teams from the American League are chosen to play in the playoffs, along with a team from each league as the "wild card." The three teams are chosen by wins against opposing teams and the wild card is the team with the best record.  In the playoffs this year for the National League are the San Francisco Giants (NL West), the Cincinnati Reds (NL Central), and the Philadelphia Phillies. (NL East), and the wild card team is the Atlanta Braves.  For the American League, the Texas Rangers (AL West), the Minnesota Twins (AL Central), and the Tampa Bay Rays (AL East) will be playing, along with the New York Yankees as the wild card.  Personally, I think the Giants will win the NL playoffs and the Yankees will win the AL playoffs, leading to the two playing against each other at the World Series.  It will be interesting to see it all happen!  Post a comment if you have any predictions! :)

MLB Standings


  1. When are these Playoffs? and how much are the cheap seats? haha

  2. The playoffs start tomorrow! The Texas Rangers are playing against the Tampa Bay Rays! Hopefully I'll get a chance to see the game in the dorm lobby - if you're interested it starts at 1 pm Eastern time, which would be 10 here!! Check it out if you can! Oh, and Google the cheap seats! You can get "nosebleed" seats, which are way at the top, but can run for as little as $5!!! What a deal! :P
