Well its not like teams play for the wild card, their goal is get the Division title... Just a stupid rule and being that my team got eliminated already makes me more mad laugh.giflaugh.gif

I would be too. Win 94 games and it ends on 1 game

Hate to see my team go out like that.

exactly, they should be at a disadvantage to begin with.

I love the one game playoff, makes for an exciting race to the end.

I'd be in favor of a 3 game series for the Wild Card series.

My brother is on the grounds crew for the Braves and he said it was wild out there. Shoes thrown, beer, ketchup, mustard, etc.

He told me there were fans out there saying "If you're a real Braves fan you wouldn't pick the trash up" roll.gif

Division winners still get to set their rotation w/ the extra days off.
They didn't want to run the risk of the World Series going into November.

Welp, it was fun Texas.

 

Rangers played their worst stretch of baseball at the worse possible time.

I'm not a baseball fan....but man these MLB playoff games are always on point.

Holy crap, I can't believe Saunders came through like he did. Played like a BAWSE!!! Can't wait to see the Yanks. We can beat this team...Bmore is sooo lucky to have Buck....

Orioles Magic...
post #8536 of 77278
A few things.....

-Congrats to doublejs, abovelegit and the other Orioles fans. Great game today!! Great season so far. And thanks for the money tonight.

-Rangers. sick.gif What a DISASTER of an ending to the season. Awful.

-I guess I am going to be the guy to get flamed by all of you, but I personally believe the infield fly call was the correct call. nerd.gif

Sad day to be a Braves fan mean.gif Chipper officially retired

Chipper's error was huge and it was NOT an infield fly screw the Umpires

This game was disgusting even worse than the Brooks Conrad 3 error game. sick.gif

Every thing went wrong for the Braves errors all over, The "Infield fly" call, Fans throwing bottles/cans/sneakers, Fredi Gonzalez calling for a safety bunt mean.gif with Simmons and Medlen on deck what was Gonzalez thinking. Medlen deserved much better he only gave up 2 ER.

Just got back from the Harbor. Shouts to the other 3-4 O's fans on here. That's a Saunders performance. Scattered hits/walks and double play balls to avoid the big innings.


Lot of errors in these games, folks musts been nervous.




MLB should make it a best of 3 though.

No doubt.

I'm a die hard Cards fan but it's just ridiculous for the Braves to be that much better in the regular season and not at least get a chance at a game 2 and (possibly) 3.

The one-game format is exciting for us fans but it's just not fair to the players. IMO.

Baseball has an extraordinarily long regular season. They shouldn't adopt an NFL playoff model for any round.
post #8542 of 77278
How are you gonna have a billion game season, milking fans throughout, and then have it all come down to one game? I would boycott the MLB if I was from Atlanta.

Hopefully. I regret not putting money down on tickets earlier. Tomorrow is the only game I can go to unless we make it to the WS.

Since when r u an O's fan? LOL. Never the less, i aint even mad. Had casual day at work yesterday, so I rocked the Eddie Murray throwback. Wearing Cal today. Such a good feeling. Made waking up 3x since midnight to deal w/ a crying baby no big deal. I dont care what happens from here on out. This has been a hell of a season. All the pressure on the world on the Yanks. O's can jus go out there and play relaxed. Anyways, lets get it!!!
post #8545 of 77278
Yeah 162 games is a long season and to have it come down to one game is rediculous. That is why you saw so many errors in both games yesterday, nerves and the reality of the one and done format.

J.J. Hardy has like a .992 fielding percentage and he booted a ball. Mark Reynolds should get a gold golve at first base and he misplayed one as well and missed a pickoff throw (which was poor) too.



The Texas and Baltimore game would have happened regardless, even last year since both teams has the same record......but Braves fans have to be heated with how things ended.




At this point any and all O's fans can come out of the woodwork......I'm sure 16 years of losing made a lot of supporters lose interest, but hopefully the winning reignites their zest for baseball in Baltimore.


Skins on Sunday.....O's and Nats playoff games too? Just give me two out of three, I'm not too greedy.


I'm going to try to head to Game 2 on Monday.

It only comes down to one game for teams that didn't win their division... The two wild card teams is the best thing to happen for the postseason.
post #8547 of 77278
If it were last season, Baltimore and Texas woulda been playing a one game tie-breaker for the one wild card.

I seriously think Boston is that team.

As a fan of all Baltimore teams, its exciting to see the O's playing the Yankees in the playoffs....looking forward to a good series, hope they can start off game 1 with some live bats...
