IF THE PLAYOFFS STARTED TODAY… September 19, 2010



More shuffling in the NL and no doubt some position changing will be happening in the AL soon enough.

It’s amazing to see with all the hard charging done by the Giants and the Rockies that neither would be in if the playoffs started today.

It is still mid September. But after today it will be LATE September… and teams still in the mix need to find one more good run in them… operation “Big Push.”

Let’s see what the match ups would be today.

AMERICAN LEAGUE DIVISION SERIES

NEW YORK YANKEES (AL East Champion)
has home field advantage over
TEXAS RANGERS (AL West Champion)

MINNESOTA TWINS (AL Central Champion)
has home field advantage over
TAMPA BAY RAYS (AL Wild Card)

NATIONAL LEAGUE DIVISION SERIES

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES (NL East Champion)
has home field advantage over
SAN DIEGO PADRES (NL West Champion)

CINCINNATI REDS (NL Central Champion)
has home field advantage over
ATLANTA BRAVES (NL Wild Card)

A Reds vs. Braves series? One of those teams would be in the NLCS if the playoffs ended today.
Frankly I can’t imagine an easier road for the Phillies to make it 3 pennants in a row.

And with Cliff Lee dealing, who knows who will come out of the American League.

There’s about 14 games left… I have a hunch this won’t be the final match ups.
