The first round of the baseball playoffs being on Tuesday with the two American League wild card teams playing a game for the right to play the Texas Rangers in a best of five series. The AL teams are both from the AL East and they recently played each other. The Baltimore Orioles took two of the three they played in Toronto against the Blue Jays this past week. Both teams have the same record as the season ended so this game will be a tough one to decide who will win as Toronto hold the slim lead in the season series of 10-9.
Over on the National League side we’ve got the loser of last year’s World Series the limping New York Mets will meet with the San Francisco Giants, who have won all the previous World Series in even year in the 2010s on Wednesday. Whoever make it out of this game will face the Chicago Cubs in a best of five. I doubt that the Mets will do much this postseason because of the lack of pitching but in a one game match up with both aces throwing it is a game that either team could win the Mets hold the edge in the season series 4-3. However, the Giants and Mets finished the season with identical records so just like the AL game it is a coin toss type game.
