The MLB Playoffs Are Set – The Cubs Will Host the Miami, Not Florida, Marlins

Chicago Cubs

The Cardinals kept things simple today by beating the Brewers, which means they finish second in the NL Central, and don’t have to play the makeup doubleheader tomorrow. It’s all just set now, and the Cubs will host the Miami Marlins (don’t make your FLORIDA Marlins jokes, friends) for the opening round of the NL postseason, starting on Wednesday.

The full National League playoff picture shakes out this way:

The top seed Dodgers will host the eight seed (Wild Card) Brewers.

The second seed Braves will host the seven seed (Wild Card) Reds.

The third seed Cubs will host the sixth seed (NL East 2) Marlins.

The fourth seed Padres (NL West 2) will host the fifth seed (NL Central 2) Cardinals.

The full American League playoff picture looks like this:

The top seed Rays will host the eight seed (Wild Card) Blue Jays.

The second seed A’s will host the seven seed (Wild Card) White Sox.

The third seed Twins will host the (AL West 2) Astros.

The fourth seed Indians will host the (NL East 2) Yankees.
