MLB Announces Full Wild Card Series Broadcast Schedules

Chicago Cubs

The Chicago Cubs’ season ends today, but the baseball season will carry on. Specifically, the MLB playoffs. And I choose to make for myself some rooting interests.

Today, MLB announced the full broadcast schedule for the Wild Card series this weekend, starting on Friday at 11:07 am CT:

All right, so I don’t really have much of a dog in the American League fights here, but what the heck, I’ll stay local and say go Guardians over the Rays, and then I’ll pull for the team with the massive playoff drought being broken. That’d be Mariners over the Blue Jays.

In the National League, though, it’s not difficult. I hope the Phillies knock the Cardinals out lickity split in two games, and I hope the Padres beat the Mets. That one can go to three games, though, just to make it all the more frustrating for a Mets team that cowarded their way through the Trade Deadline. Maybe they could lose Game Three because they don’t have a quality bat available to hit in a key spot. That’d be fun.

Actually, now that I think about it, I would also want the Phillies-Cardinals series to go three games, with the Phillies winning after a massive 9th inning comeback, capped off by a Kyle Schwarber triple and a Nick Castellanos home run. I mean, if we’re just CHOOSING whatever outcomes we want to see, that’d be pretty darn fun.
