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.

Mets make splash with 2 moves in 1 day
What a day for the Mets! When the Cubs scooped up Ben Zobrist, one of the hottest free agents in the league right from under the Mets' noses, the Mets needed a backup plan. There was talk that they might not have one, but they proved everyone wrong. They made a quick move for Pirates 2B Neil Walker, trading SP Jon Niese for him straight up. Let me be clear: this was a great move. The Mets, with four healthy young arms plus Zach Wheeler on the way back from injury and guys like Logan Verrett and Rafael Montero ready to contribute until Wheeler comes back, had no need for Niese. He was making too much money to be what was essentially their 6th (or even 7th) starter. But the Mets did need a second baseman, and in Walker they got just that. He may not be a superstar, but he is very solid defensively and is better at the plate than Wilmer Flores or youngster Dilson Herrera, who will now have more time to develop in the minors instead of being thrown into a starting role before he's ready. The Mets also scooped up SS Asdrubal Cabrera in the same day, signing the player to a 2-year deal. This one also makes sense, as the 2 shortstops on the Mets' roster are injured and racing to be back in time for Spring Training. In any case, Cabrera might be better than both Tejada and Flores (the guys who split time at SS last season) through and through. Like Walker, he's no superstar, but this was a very good move for a team that needed some depth. Sure, I'm sad to see Niese go after all that he's done for this team over the past couple of years. He's been through thick and thin with a team that struggled so much and he will be remembered as a tough Met and a good man. But business is business, and the Mets got two players that could start everyday for them on the cheap in exchange for one player that they did not need. When you look at it like that - and I think you have to - this was a great day for the Mets.

Series preview: St. Louis Cardinals vs. Chicago Cubs
Here's a preview of the final NLDS Series, this one a Midwest showdown between the Chicago Cubs and the St. Louis Cardinals. Let's take a look. St. Louis Cardinals Season record: 100-62 Home record: 55-26 Away record: 45-36 Key players: Michael Wacha (SP), Matt Carpenter (3B), Jhonny Peralta (SS), Jason Heyward (RF) Key injuries: Carlos Martinez (SP), Yadier Molina (C) Projected starters: John Lackey, Jaime Garcia, Wacha, Lance Lynn, Lackey Here's what you need to know: The Cardinals are a team that seems to be engineered for October baseball year after year. They just do not stop. While the team has suffered countless injuries this season - including recent ones to huge players like their ace Martinez and captain Molina - you can never count them out. Rookie Steven Piscotty seems to get big hit after big hit and the Cards are just never out of it. They also have probably the best home crowd in the league and are tough to beat in St. Louis. Chicago Cubs Season record: 97-65 Home record: 49-32 Away record: 48-33 Key players: Jake Arrieta (SP), Kyle Schwarber (RF), Kris Bryant (3B), Anthony Rizzo (1B) Key injuries: None Projected starters: John Lester, Kyle Hendricks, Arrieta, Lester, Arrieta Here's what you need to know: Is this finally the year for the Cubs? Back to the Future II projected them to finally win it all in 2015 and it looks within the realm of possibility. After beating the Pirates in a heated Wild Card game, the Cubs have more momentum than any team in the league. Arrieta is on an absolutely wild run and should win NL Cy Young - he has been the best player in baseball over the past three months. Rookies Schwarber and Bryant are hitting the snot out of the ball. Watch out for these Cubbies. My projection: While the Cardinals were the best team in the league all year, in the playoffs it's all about pitching and momentum. The Cubs have the league's best pitcher and loads of momentum. While the Cardinals may be a grittier team with more experience, I think the Cubs are just better at this point. I'm taking the Cubs in 5 as an upset.

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!
Blue Jays fight one back
Toronto needed one, and they got it. After dropping Games 1 and 2 to the Royals in Kansas City, the Blue Jays absolutely had to have Game 3 in order to save their season. Going down 3-0 would not have boded well for their chances. Early in the game, it looked like Kansas City was going to continue their hot streak - they scored in the top of the first to make it 1-0. However, the Blue Jays jumped on Johnny Cueto, scoring 3 runs in the second and putting up a six spot in the 3rd. Cueto has been all over the place recently. After being traded from the Reds to the Royals at the deadline in the summer, when he was one of the best pitchers in the league, the long-haired monster has struggled mightily since coming to Kansas City. He had a few good starts in earlier in the playoffs, but was rocked in Monday's game, putting up a line of 2.0 innings pitched, walking 4 and allowing 6 hits and 8 runs. Das not good. Blue Jays starter Marcus Strohman wasn't great - he allowed 11 hits over 6.1 innings - but he limited the damage to 4 runs allowed, which was enough on a night that the Blue Jays really had the bats going. So now the series is 2-1, still in favor of the Royals, with two more games in Toronto before the series heads back to Kansas City for Game 6 and Game 7. It's getting tighter, and tonight's game will go a long way to either watching Kansas City start to wrap things up or seeing Toronto level the thing at 2. Tonight, it's knuckeballer R.A. Dickey for Toronto vs. Chris Young for the Royals. I'm happy to see Dickey, an ex-Met, get a really key start in the playoffs. I'm rooting for the Royals in this series, but think Toronto gets the win tonight behind the veteran starter. What do you think? Will KC take a 3-1 lead tonight or can Toronto continue to fight? @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 @DonnaMelton @jokes @BEAUTYgirlARIEL @David19Flo23 @karencorchado @SamuelRodriguez @xitlalicordova1 @AndrewMaldonado @Link4TW @DannyMoses @ClaySharko @Ravenwing92 @FromBlue2U @LemissaNicole @BossDominata @MalikLawary @KyleBerke
