Playoff baseball is finally here.

What does this mean? Well, outside of the die-hard of die-hard baseball fans who sat through a laborious 162-game schedule, watching baseball that is truly worth a damn is now a real option. Goosebump City can occur on any pitch or swing of the bat, and to answer Maximus’ ultimate question…yes, that is why we are here.

What’s even more astounding is this: along with the fact that this is the first chance we get to see the one-game playoff format play out, there are four TSFJ scribes who have allegiances to these teams. Matt vs. Ed in the opening game between the Cardinals and the Braves at 5 PM Eastern, along with the The NFL Chick vs. Kenny as the Rangers and Orioles face off at 8 PM Eastern.

Needless to say, there will be two writers here who will be really sad before the weekend even started. Check out our thoughts on the one-game playoffs, and let us know who you think will win and advance in the comments section.
