A frustrating season comes to an end for the Reds. Despite the 90 wins, it was a pretty frustrating path. They added Choo, declared themselves "all in," and not only did they fail to repeat as division champs, but they won 7 fewer games, finished in 3rd, and couldn't even get back to the NLDS. Before the season, I said an appearance in the NLCS was mandatory for Dusty Baker to keep his job. Of course, it's not entirely his fault, but it's time for some major changes, starting with him. 2-7 record with the Reds in the postseason, and 0 series wins in 6 years at the helm. Time for him to go.

I want the Indians to win if for no reason other than to have Francona come back to Fenway and just flip a massive bird at the owner's box.

The wait for the divisional series has been excruciatingly long. MLB needs to play these WC games on one night and not stretch them out over 2 days. 4 or 5 days off can be a death sentence for some of the division winners or just flat out lower quality baseball if teams aren't able to shake off rust. Which is why i'm probably against any expansion of the WC play in game to a 3 game series, because that might extend the lay off from 4-5 days to a full week. People should Baseball is practically an everyday sport a team taken that much time off is only going to hurt the game.

Before last year the Braves and their 94 wins wouldn't have had to mess with the unpredictability of a one game playoff against a team who finished 6 games behind them in the standings, and would've gotten a five game series to try and prove themselves instead.

The win totals are not directly comparable given uneven schedules, inter-divisional match ups, and how your rotation lays out.

It really is as simple as winning your division. All the WC teams in the second half of this year had opportunities against the leaders in their division to take hold, but they failed to do so. Indians twice had a series against the Tigers with less than 5 games in between and just got destroyed both times. I'm pretty sure the same can be said for every other WC team.

My predicition, even though absolutely any team can win in baseball once you make it to the playoffs because there is very little that separates them:

Cardinals over Tigers, 4-2 in the World Series.

The teams that would really surprise me if they won are the A's and Pirates. I just don't think they are as strong overall as the others.

And I'm quickly reminded why being a Braves fan sucks. All the regular season success in the world but almost just as much playoff failure and disappointment to go along with it.

This pseudo-ace bullshit isn't ever going to cut it in the playoffs. Until we get one we ain't doing shit in the postseason.
