IF THE PLAYOFFS STARTED TODAY… September 25, 2010



Things are shuffling around on the deck of the SS Playoffs… teams are being added and others dropped and playoff match ups are being mixed up.

Frankly I wouldn’t mind this exact playoff set up in the National League to be the final one. And the top of the American League has three teams with identical win totals and 1 game separating the three in the loss column.

Let’s see the current match ups.

AMERICAN LEAGUE DIVISION SERIES

TAMPA BAY RAYS (AL East Champion)
has home field advantage over
TEXAS RANGERS (AL West Champion)

MINNESOTA TWINS (AL Central Champion)
has home field advantage over
NEW YORK YANKEES (AL Wild Card)

NATIONAL LEAGUE DIVISION SERIES

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

SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS
(NL West Champion)
has home field advantage over
CINCINNATI REDS (NL Central Champion)

The Padres are back in it while the Braves picked a bad time to drop 4 straight. And Colorado has dropped 4, making them as close to a non factor as you can have (even with games against the Dodgers coming up.)

The Phillies and Rangers can clinch tomorrow… but the NL West and Wild Card remain murky.
