IF THE PLAYOFFS STARTED TODAY… September 28, 2010


The Phillies clinched home field advantage throughout the postseason (and Roy Halladay probably clinched his second Cy Young.) And soon the Phils might be aiming for the title of greatest team in Philadelphia sports history (they MUST be in the conversation!)

The Reds couldn’t count on the Pirates to beat the Cardinals so they’ll have to clinch it themselves. It is better that way.

Let’s hope Cincy draws better than Tampa Bay in THEIR potential clincher.

Meanwhile one game in the loss column is still all that separates San Diego, Cincinnati, San Francisco and Atlanta… and it probably won’t be figured out until the weekend.

It’s going to be good.

Let’s look at 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
CINCINNATI REDS (NL Central Champion)

SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS
(NL West Champion)

has home field advantage over
ATLANTA BRAVES (NL Wild Card)

The Twins picked a bad time for a 4 game losing streak… they could be looking at AL Home Field advantage.

Either way, let’s hope Cincinnati gets the win at home tomorrow. The Reds fans have been waiting 15 years for a Division Winner. They shouldn’t have the ole “Watch a game on TV from the clubhouse”clinching moment. They should do it on the field.
