The Colorado Rockies’ 2022 season may be over, but the postseason is just getting started with MLB taking its new 12-team playoff format for an October test drive. This year will see three Wild Card teams rather than two with the top two seeds in each league receiving a first-round bye.
Wild Card Series games will be played at the home stadium of the team with the higher seed. The winners will then advance.
Here’s how things look:
The party gets started on Friday, October 7, as all four Wild Card Series start:
- Tampa Bay Rays at Cleveland Guardians (on ESPN at 10:07 am MT)
- Philadelphia Phillies at St. Louis Cardinals (on ABC at 12:07 pm MT)
- Seattle Mariners at Toronto Blue Jays (on ESPN at 2:07 pm MT)
- San Diego Padres at New York Mets (on ESPN at 6:07 pm MT)
With MLB trying to its own version of
March October Madness, it seems only fitting that Purple Row have its own Postseason Pool (without actually gambling). Who do you think will be moving forward?
Leave your predictions in the comments, and let the madness begin!
