MLB Postseason

By Rohin Walia, Reporter

It is finally October, and you know what that means. No not Halloween, I am talking about playoff baseball. Sadly, Bay Area teams in California have made the playoffs this season. The San Francisco Giants and Oakland A’s didn’t make the playoffs this season. With the wild-card games complete, the best-of-five division series are set: Boston at Houston; the Yankees at Cleveland; the Chicago Cubs at Washington; and Arizona at the Los Angeles Dodgers. After the marathon of the MLB regular season, the sprint to the World Series begins on Tuesday night with the American League Wild Card Game between the New York Yankees and the Minnesota Twins. For the baseball fans who are looking for more drama after most divisional and wild-card races were locked up in advance of the final weekend of the regular season, the winner-takes-all showdowns to start the playoffs should provide them with excitement as well. The wild card games were very exciting. The divisional series in both leagues are best-of-five affairs, with the top seed in each series hosting Games 1, 2 and 5, while the team with the worst record of the two participants hosting Games 3 and 4.  Last year, the Chicago Cubs won the World Series and were able to break the curse of not winning the World Series for more than 100 years. Let us see which team will win this year.
