Here's the full MLB playoff schedule

It's playoff time!

Who's excited? I know I am - and I bet my fellow baseball fans are too! @mchlyang @christianmordi @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl !!
Let's take a look at the Wild Card and NLDS schedule.

It all gets started this Tuesday at 8PM ET as Houston travels to the Bronx to face the Yankees.

The Yankees could have a tough time with the AL Cy Young frontrunner and 20-game winner, but it should be an intense game one way or the other. Win or go home!
In the NL Wild Card, the Cubs face the Pirates in Pittsburgh at 8PM ET on Wednesday.
This game also features a likely Cy Young winner, as Jake Arrieta will look to continue his masterful second half and knock out the Cubs' division rivals.
After those Wild Card games are settled, we enter into the Division Series. Each series is a 5-game set, with the team with home field advantage playing host in games 1, 2, and 5.
Both sets in the National league follow the same schedule of games.

New York Mets vs. Los Angeles Dodgers

St. Louis Cardinals vs. [winner of Pittsburgh vs. Chicago]

Game 1 - Friday [@ LA/St. Louis]
Game 2 - Saturday [@ LA/St. Louis]
Game 3 - Monday [@ NY/Pittsburgh or Chicago]
Game 4 - Tuesday [@ NY/Pittsburgh or Chicago]
Game 5 - Thursday [@ LA/St. Louis]
There's lots of intrigue in the American League, too.
Texas Rangers vs. Toronto Blue Jays
Kansas City Royals vs. [winner of New York vs. Houston]
Game 1 - Thursday [@Toronto/KC]
Game 2 - Friday [@Toronto/KC]
Game 3 - Sunday [@Texas/New York or Houston]
Game 4 - Monday [@Texas/New York or Houston]
Game 5 - Wednesday [@Toronto/KC]

Enjoy the playoffs everyone! Be on the lookout for more cards anticipating and making projections as the first games approach!

I really don't know which Yankee starter I'd trot out there. I honestly might give Severino the chance, live arm, minimal scouting report, and a experience he'll hopefully need for future playoff runs.
Oops I meant live haha. I guess love works too
@karencorchado I shall! It will be a love discussion card haha! Thanx for the support! I really appreciate it
also btw, if the yanks win, they wont have cc throughout the whole playoffs. He checked himself into Rehab today.

MLB Top Plays of the Day (09/17/15)
Here are your Top 5 Plays of the Day! 5. Salvador Perez (Kansas City Royals) Was Salvador Perez a shortstop? You definitely don't see that too often with catchers! Perez calls off Yordano Ventura, catches the ball barehand, and guns one down first to get the out. What a play by Salvador Perez, the catcher for the Kansas City Royals! Yes, a catcher! Kansas beat Cleveland 8-4. 4. Adam Jones (Baltimore Orioles) Runners on first and second. But if you have Adam Jones in center, he is not going to let you score two runs when a ball's hit towards him. He makes an amazing catch, rolls over, and saves two runs! Oh right. He also ended that inning with his catch. The Orioles beat the Rays 4-3, thanks to Jones's amazing catch. 3. Torii Hunter (Minnesota Twins) Who said Torri Hunter is the old guy on the Twins? He still has some game left in him. He sprints for the ball, slides beautifully onto the warning track, and makes the catch. What a play by the forty year old veteran outfielder! The Twins however fall to the Angels 11-8. 2. Francisco Lindor (Cleveland Indians) He makes the list again, this time with a second place-caliber play! It's hit sharply to short, but Francisco Lindor is there to make the diving, backhanded catch and makes the throw to first. Frankie Lindor with the run saving play, but unfortunately, the Indians fall to the Royals 8-4. 1. Carlos Correa (Houston Astros) There comes the shift for Prince Fielder. Correa is on the right side of second base as he gets ready to grab that grounder from Fielder. However, pitcher Lance McCullers reaches for the ball, but it bounces off McCullers's glove. Correa wasn't expecting it but reacts quickly to catch the ball on his knees, and makes a perfect throw to first to get Fielder out at first. The Astros however falls to division rival Rangers 8-2. Now that was your Top 5 Plays of the Day from last night's games! What was your favorite play of the day? @christianmordi @jeff4122 @ljk901023 @TessStevens @ButterflyBlu *If you guys would like to be tagged every time I upload a Top 5 Plays of the Day card, please let me know by commenting on the comments section below!
To my sports fans...
I said this in a previous card, but I want you all to know that I don't think I'm going to be able to be on Vingle as much, at least for now. I am in my last semester of college right now and really need to focus on my studies as I finish my degree... plus... you know... that job search that everyone talks about! I've had so much fun being involved with all of you over the past few months through the MLB playoffs (how great were those Mets!?!?), EPL and NFL seasons - culminating with the Super Bowl next week! I know this community can be an amazing resource for everyone and I hope you all continue to share ideas, thoughts, favorite plays and players and games and everything else that I've seen go on here recently. You guys are the best! Thanks for reading and commenting on my posts!

Jeter addresses his one-night stand ritual
The former Yankees captain is known not only for his illustrious career on the field, but also his off-the-field life. One rumor that followed Jeter throughout his career was that after his one-night stands (which he's had with a numerous ladies), he would send them off with a basket of his own memorabilia. And he's not the one usually coming out to address these stories, but he had to come out and address this one. Check out his interview with Joe Buck below! During the interview, Jeter said, "I don't address them because — well, I guess I just did — but because once you address it, you have to address every single rumor that comes out and then if one time if you don't, they automatically assume it's true. So I just chose not to address any rumors out there, but that's gotta be the dumbest one I've heard." He also asked the audience, "You guys really believe that? My own memorabilia, I'm signing?" Well, to tell you the truth, I wouldn't mind getting a gift basket of Derek Jeter's memorabilia after spending a night at his place! I miss Jeter so much! But I'm glad he addressed this one out in public! He was given so much shit for this and the captain deserves better. I had to let you guys know that Jeter isn't that much of an asshole! @jeff4122 @christianmordi @TessStevens @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 @DonnaMelton @InPlainSight @jokes @BEAUTYgirlARIEL @David19Flo23 @karencorchado @salahabdalla @Moose892 @BrookieyElba @SamuelRodriguez @ValerieAlissaPa @xitlalicordova1 @AndrewMaldonado @Jovi @Shippudenguy21 @AbdulrahmanSaad @trinityarcangel @thefeels @Link4TW @ChriSingularis @sanazsanaz @WilliamBrown @DannyMoses @ClaySharko @Ravenwing92 @FromBlue2U @TravisBeck @LemissaNicole @BossDominata @gatorchick96 @MatthewBoughton @MarcusJiles @BrandonMcNeil @MalikLawary @KyleBerke @manbungo2000 @DerekGumtow @havic @Straightshooter @PhilAnthony @Kirooken @yaakattackk @RodneyYoung @DreJones @JonathanKerns @bnzattoni @TravisManning @GalacticChakra @smothgreen @afxs @johnnolastname @ChristopherKenn @ChasePage @coreywriley91@MikeWolf @MrTenThirty @JasonNilsson @BrunoDutch @SherzTYC @krishntejanand @addri @ChrisStephens @AniBreo @GinnaL13 @VeronicaArtino @mishthi @andwas @TomasVasquez @oct6eg10 @NimishMathur @Sydsocquet @Darlin972 @GingerMJones @starli
MLB Top Plays of the Day (09/30/15)
Here are your Top 5 Plays of the Day! 5. Jason Heyward (St. Louis Cardinals) It was a fly ball to deep right field. The ball was hit pretty hard so Jason Heyward did not have a chance to see and "feel" where the fence was. Well, he wasn't definitely scared of the fence, but he did hesitate a bit. Nonetheless, the Cardinals' right fielder leaped and made the catch against the fence. The Cardinals crushed the Pirates 11-1 and not only won their 100th game this season, they also clinched the NL Central division title! Congrats Cardinals fans! 4. Kole Calhoun (Los Angeles Angels) Mike Trout is not the only outfielder that the Angels have and Kole Calhoun was going to let people know it for sure before the season was over. The ball was hit deep right in between Trout and Calhoun. Calhoun had a quick start to the ball, dived for it to rob a potential double from Vogt. The Angels however lost to the A's 8-7. 3. Carlos Gomez (Houston Astros) This one's for @jeff4122! It is the bottom of the ninth with the tying runner at first. Franklin Gutiérrez hit one strongly to center field, but Carlos Gomez was positioned himself perfectly to catch the ball. He wasn't satisfied though. He saw pinch runner James Jones and threw a laser beam to first. And the result? Gomez made a perfect double play to end the game and lead the Astros to a 7-6 victory over the Mariners. 2. Starlin Castro (Chicago Cubs) Starlin Castro makes the list again. We have seen some incredible plays from him all season long and he proved himself once again with this amazing play, where he dived, and threw a perfect ball to first on his knees to get the out. The Cubs hung on for the race for home advantage in the NL Wild Card game as they crushed the Cincinnati Reds, 10-3. 1. Kevin Kiermaier (Tampa Bay Rays) And finally, our top play of the day comes from Kevin Kiermaier of the Tampa Bay Rays! Dietrich shot one deep to center field for a potential double...or even a triple! But Kiermaier followed the ball and never took his eyes off of it. He turned around, timed his jump perfectly, and caught the ball. He also ran into the fence after he made the catch, but whatever. He made it to the top of the list! The Rays beat the Marlins 6-4 in this one. Now that was your Top 5 Plays of the Day from last night's games! What was your favorite play of the day? @christianmordi @jeff4122 @ljk901023 @TessStevens @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 @jokes @DonnaMelton @BEAUTYgirlARIEL @David19Flo23 @karencorchado @SamuelRodriguez @xitlalicordova1 @AndrewMaldonado *If you guys would like to be tagged every time I upload a Top 5 Plays of the Day card, please let me know by commenting on the comments section below!
I'm wearing my Mets hat proudly today
Am I sad? Yes. In fact, I'm heartbroken. But I'm also proud. The truth is, the Royals are the best team in baseball. And it's not close. They have all the pieces, and then some. They deserved this. I don't blame Terry Collins for leaving Matt Harvey in to start the 9th inning last night. As a matter of fact, I'm happy he did, even though it didn't work out. This was Harvey's game, Harvey's moment, and he had to have that chance to make it happen. He didn't, and I'll never forget it, but this is not Terry Collins' fault. It's not Harvey's fault, either. He pitched an absolutely masterful game. He was energetic and pumped up throughout, but he didn't let his emotions get in the way. He used them as fuel for 8 of the best innings I've seen anyone pitch, ever. He had the Royals completely on their heels throughout. It's not Murphy's fault, even though fingers will be pointed at the Mets' second baseman. He was a huge part of the reason the Mets were in the World Series in the first place. We have known for years what Murphy can do: he can get hot and make you love him, then make some bonehead plays that make you question everything. That's exactly what we saw in these playoffs. It's not Cespedes's fault. He was bad throughout the playoffs, but this is not one man's doing. I feel bad for the guy, because his performance in the playoffs is going to cost him millions and millions in potential contract money. I wish he could have stepped up more than he did - his baserunning, fielding and hitting were all detrimental to the team - but I'm still grateful for his presence on this team. My point is, this is no one's fault. Just like the Mets beat the snot out of the Cubs in the NLCS, the Royals outhustled, outsmarted and flat out outplayed the Mets in the World Series. I'm so happy for the ride these Mets gave me this season. I never expected to be still caring about baseball on November 1. Next year, the Mets will be coming for blood. I know that for a fact. This is just the beginning for this uber-talented young group. So say it with me. LET'S! GO! METS!
