  • My point is, if they have a tiebreaker that can be used that isn't a coin flip, use it. Record against the remaining teams seems like a perfectly reasonable tiebreaker.

      The way the NFL does it. Yep.

      I guess the baseball narrative is 162 games is too many to have decided on a coin flip (plus an NFL game kills a week, where as MLB game kills a day).

        We have no reason to complain. We have two titles. One happened to be compromised on one timeline out of 14 million.

            Honestly, it’s weird seeing a Seattle team being embraced.

              The Mariners were America's team the year we came back and beat the Yankees (97?).

              Edit: 95.

                  Sweet. How many Vikings' Super Bowls can we claim now? We are the absolute kings of losing on a 1/14,000,000 type situation.

                  Midway through the games today, and pretty much everyone holding up their end of the bargain to create a 4-team tie for the 2 Wild Card spots...well, almost everyone. : - p

                    • Well, the Yankees walk off the Rays, and then the Red Sox storm back from a 4-run deficit to take a 7-5 lead in the 9th.

                      So we'll have Red Sox - Yankees for about the 9 millionth time. : (

                      From a Twins' fan's perspective, this is about the worst AL Playoff field as humanly possible.

                        • I've been a Giants fan for over 50 years and if it should turn out to be a Bost/San Fran WS I will be at one on those games at Fenway.

                              The Rays are definitely the "best" of the awful options on the AL side. I would rather eat tar than see the White Sox back in the World Series. The Yankees and Red Sox are about as boring as it gets, and the Astros are cheaters. So, by default, I will be cheering on Tampa...but I certainly won't have any good feelings if they do advance.

                              On the NL side, my least favorite NL team is in it (Atlanta). Dodgers fans are horrendous. I could easily say the same thing about the Cardinals...but I have to bite my tongue, as my wife is from St. Louis and they are all Cards fans. I don't have really strong feelings one way or the other for the Giants, but they do have 3 recent titles. While the Brewers are the Twins interleague "rival," I would be just fine with them winning a a title.

                              So yes, Rays/Brewers, with Milwaukee taking the title.

                                I would rank the NL

                                1) Giants
                                2) Brewers
                                3) Braves
                                4) Dodgers
                                5) Cardinals
