My bracket is broken (I went one for four), but I have to say that I loved the format and having my weekend absolutely absorbed by terrific baseball.
Today, the next round begins. Here’s when and how to watch:
- Philadelphia Phillies @ Atlanta Braves (11:07am on Fox)
- Seattle Mariners @ Houston Astros (1:37 pm on TBS)
- Cleveland Guardians @ New York Yankees (5:37 pm on TBS)
- San Diego Padres @ Los Angeles Dodgers (7:37 on FS1)
You can see the rest of the schedule here. In the near term, the NL will play on Wednesday, and the AL will play on Thursday.

Let me pose two questions. First, what did you think of the three-game series format? In case you’re interested, Ryan Spilborghs liked it:
So far I love it, it’s still too early to tell how much it will impact next round, but it’s been high drama, and the strategy of a 3 game series has serious ripples on pitching decisions. Which I think is better.— Ryan Spilborghs (@spillygoat19) October 9, 2022
Second, who do you see going to the ALCS and NLCS?
Me? I’m looking forward to another full day of excellent baseball. Let the games continue!
