As an Angels fan, I had the opposite reaction. :wuzrobbedSorry. It's been 15 years since the Orioles made the playoffs (heck, it's been that long since they had a winning season), so you'll have to excuse our :biggrinbo

The :cheer: are well deserved. Good on them. I hope they win it all this year.

(Always had a soft spot for the Orioles)

The Orioles have some pretty boys. Not CJ Wilson pretty (the main reason I want the Angels in the post-season :grope: ), so I would be fine with an Orioles/Giants World Series.

With the Giants winning on my birthday. As I have previously stated. ;)

Congrats to the Nats! :) I have to root for my former Expos even if it's bittersweet. Especially with Philly out of it this season.

Well, the American league wrapped up everything last night.

Only second wild card in NL to be decided. :)

I seem to be on a pretty good streak. In my first full baseball season in Houston back in 2005 (moved there in Aug '04), they made it to the World Series. Then in my first full baseball season in Chicago in 2007 (moved there in Jan '07), the Cubs made it to the post season. Now in my first full season in DC (moved here in Apr '11, so I wasn't technically here for all of last season), the Nats are in the post season.

Maybe my next move should be to Seattle. I sort of root for them and they haven't been to the post season in over a decade. ;)

The crazy thing about this season is that my childhood favorites, the Reds & Tigers, are also in the post season!

:wuzrobbed My Angels were eliminated.

I guess I'll have to root for Oakland. I don't have any particular love for them, but I don't really care about any of the other teams either, so might as well root for an AL west team.

I suppose I can still hope that Trout gets the MVP. Cabrera can hit, but his sub par defense should prevent him from actually winning the award.

Yay Tigers! :cheer2: (Wow, Chicago White Sox sure did blow that one...)

So it's down the Dodgers and the Cardinals for the second wild card spot. I don't like either of those teams, but I dislike the Dodgers more. So....go Cards?

NAAAAAAATS! Well, they limped into it, but they are NL East Champs. Now I hope they are playing better by this weekend. I hate this starting away thing, but at least I get to go to a playoff game next week!

Starting away? Cincy and the Nats are guaranteed to have the top 2 records in the NL, meaning they'll both have home field advantage for their respective NLDS match-ups, won't they?

First two games are at the 3/4 seeds' parks, last three at 1/2 seeds' parks. Next year, they return to 2-2-1

They added the wild card game, but the TV schedules were set so the wild card takes up the travel day. So no time for 2-2-1.

Damn Yankees! I really don't want the Orioles to play a wild card game against Oakland. They didn't do so well playing them a few weeks ago, IIRC.

Are the division seeds (for the DS) determined by record or is the wild card team automatically the 4th seed?

I wouldn't want to be Mark Ellis tonight. :yikes:
Dodgers were behind by one in the 7th, he had a great hit, reached second and tried to extend to third. Didn't work out too well. Then the very next batter managed to triple but was left on base. Baseball sure is cruel sometimes...
