In Case You Forgot, The Best Part Of The MLB Season Starts Tonight


david price

Baseball is still on? Yep. If you managed to stay interested in the entire 162-game slog this year, you likely already know who’s going to be in the postseason. For the rest of us — those who could not wait for the NFL season and now think of little else — this is a friendly reminder that the best part of the MLB season begins in a matter of hours, so you should probably brush up.

We start with Game 163 tonight, which will be like these new one-game wild card matchups, only better, because both sides (the Rays and Rangers) will really stink of desperation. It’s one thing to say you made the playoffs but then lose the wild card — it’s another to have to play an extra game and then go home with nothing to show for it.

Here’s the full postseason schedule for the next 10 days, assuming each divisional series goes the distance (via Yahoo Sports):

Monday
AL wild card tiebreaker: Tampa Bay Rays at Texas Rangers, 8:07 p.m. ET

Tuesday
NL WC: Cincinnati Reds at Pittsburgh Pirates, 8:07 p.m. ET
