Here’s what we’ve got (most of you probably know this, but if not):
-Boston and Tampa Bay tied for the AL wildcard lead with one game to play. Both are on TV locally tonight. Boston (Jon Lester pitching) plays at Baltimore (Alfredo Simon) at 7 p.m. on MASN. Red Sox are a 9-to-5 favorite. The Rays (David Price) host the Yankees (TBA) at 7 p.m. on ESPN.
-Atlanta and St. Louis are tied for the NL wildcard lead. The Braves (Tim Hudson) host the Phillies (Joe Blanton) at 7 p.m. on ESPN2. The Cardinals (Chris Carpenter) are at Houston (Brett Myers) at 8 p.m. ESPN2 will pick up the game AFTER the completion of the Braves game.
-So this is awesome, right? If we’re still tied after tonight, the Rays will host the Red Sox at 4:07 p.m. tomorrow. The Cardinals would host the Braves tomorrow at 8 p.m. Home field was determined by head-to-head record during the regular season. Pretty sure both games would be on ESPN, but I’ll let you know for sure tomorrow morning in the event this happens.
-I think the Cardinals have the best chance to lose, followed (in order) by the Red Sox, Rays and Braves. What do you guys think?
UNDERRATED HALLOWEEN MOVIE
-I’m not going to link to the trailer, but it’s easy to find: “Trick ‘r Treat.” Surprisingly good stuff.
