  1. “The following Game Scores include the new and improved playoff-odds adjustment.”

    This must be some usage of the word improved I’m not familiar with.

  2. It seems to me that there are good chances at both leagues having a one-game playoff for the wildcard spot.

  3. Sure are. Assuming each game is a coin toss, each league has a 50-50 chance of a one-game playoff, meaning there’s a 1 in 4 chance that both leagues will see it happen.

    Of course, each game is not just a coin toss. Personally, I think it’s likely that all four WC contenders win tonight, forcing two one-game playoffs. Every team is playing either a bottom-feeder (HOU, BAL) or a team that will be resting its veterans and putting scrubs out there to prepare for the playoffs (PHI, NYY).

  5. Thank you Carson. Tiny babies, like Rick Steve, are comic gold.

    Please please do a FG livechat if there are any playoff games.

  6. Where and when would the games be? Who would pitch?

    Not a single seed is decided except #1 in both leagues. How they decide that if there is a tie?

  7. Carson, I have to object to your plan for all of The Babies to find jobs. It would not be good for the economy. The problem with the economy isn’t that there aren’t enough workers. Rather, the problem is that there aren’t enough jobs. You’d be making the problem worse.

    So, I offer a counter-proposal: that all of The Babies start businesses, to hire the unemployed masses.

  9. #1 seeds are already clinched (Phillies and Yanks); they get homefield. Wild Card is always the #4 seed; they cannot have homefield. The other 2 seeds will be determined by overall record; if there is a tie, look to head-to-head record.

    But no intra-division matchups are allowed in the divsion series. If the wildcard comes from the same division as the #1 seed, the #1 seed instead hosts the #3 seed, and the #2 seed hosts the wildcard.

  10. Ah, forgot about the head-to-head rule. As I recall there are rules for if that is a tie too that get quite long and end with removing days from the star or end until the answer is reached.

    My point was #2, and #3 seeds are not determined (just their seeds) in addition to the WC not being decided. There is a lot up in the air for this postseason.
